    Tony, that's how I feel about the little sparkly plants...

    I daresay that looks like catesbei, but I'd wait until it puts out some healthy fully mature growth...

    It looks carnivorous to me!! Stand back everyone!!!!!!!
    I agree with the assessment to wait until next spring, and give it a chance to really "come out".

    I think you have what I have:

    I also saved this, only from a garden centre, and it was all pale green when I got it a month ago. The darkness of the peristome is my favourite feature on this plant.
    Definitely a purp. cross, like others before have said, most possibly S. catesbaei.

    Wow! that does look about the same. mine looks really ratty though. It doesn't get much sunlight at all now, being Oct. Soon all the ratty pitchers will be gone anyway. It does have lots of new growth coming up though. I'll bet next season mine will look like that

    Your supermarket has nice hybrids. It really is amazing what a grocery store can carry these days.

    You know what's funny? The supermarkets and the other stores that sell plants wait till late summer or fall before you see CP's.
    I have NEVER seen a vft or any other CP in the stores in the spring or early summer.
    I wonder how many vft's get tossed because someone will buy one in the fall and wonder why it's "dying" a month after he or she got it.

    lol Tony. Get back to your neps!

    I'd say purp x flava as well. It looks exactly like the one I have. Its too fat for a Hindle. Definitely has purp in there. With more light, it would probably color up and look like Amori's plant.

    Did I sound like I know what I'm talking about? hehe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
