    Can you help me ID this plant? I rescued it at the supermarket a while back.
    Kinda looks like my cobra's nest but it looks like it has minor in it. Hmmmm

    When I got it it looked like it might not make it. The soil was hard as a rock and bone dry. Then when I started watering it and put it in the tray, the bottom of the pitchers was rotting. I repotted it with the top of the rhizome exposed. It is doing much better now. Lots of new shoots coming up.

    Looks like a Catesbaei, which is a flava X purp cross. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I would be inclined to say it's a light-starved x 'Judith Hindle'

    But I'm not really all that good with Sar hybrids....at least not yet!

    I agree with Dave; light-starved'Judith Hindle'. Plus, if it's being sold in a supermarket, then its being propagated en mass. That narrows the choices quite a bit.

    It looks a bit fat for Judith Hindle. It could be purpurea crossed with any number of species, although catesbaei hoods tend to turn inwards. It's hard to tell because it's not fully coloured, it's October and there are just a couple of tatty pitchers on it (no offence).

    Yeah it was in pretty bad shape when I got it. Almost didn't make it.
