    Lets start from the beginning: I had (maybe still have)
    3 S. purpurea ssp. purpurea (imm.)
    5 S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkii (Mature)
    1 S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. montana (imm.)
    These were first in two bogs, then divided into three bogs, and now in one big bog. I stupidly divided 2 of the S. purpurea ssp. purpurea in July, needless to day they died. In the transet from 2 bogs to 3 my var. montana disapeared. The burkii grew like normal (See CPs of the U.S. and Canada (Schnell) p. 138) as did the other cps. In my one big bog I now have 8 S. purpurea. How? The seem to be:
    4 S. purpurea ssp. venosa var. burkii (mature)
    1 purpurea ssp. purpurea (imm.)
    2 purpurea ssp. montana (mature, the biggest plant)
    1 purpurea ssp. venosa
    I have never traded the plants or divided them. I am certain no one added plants to my collection (as nice as that would be) and I have not killed any. Does anyone have any ideas? How could the varities change? Has anyone else had different growth all of a sudden appear?

    No, but i've heard of the mysterious N. hamatas sprouting around the base of an immature plant.
    You have just recieved the Amish Computer Virus. Since the Amish don't have computers, it is based on the honor system. So please delete all the files from your computer. Thank you for your cooperation.

    That is a definite possibility, sarracenia. However, in dealing with my plants over these years, I have broken pieces of rhizome that I have just stuffed in soil, forgotten about them, or held no hope for their survival. Lo and behold, 1 or 2 years later, here are some purps, or flava, that I didn't remember, coming up, making themselves known. Whatever the case, I never begrudge more plants coming up for me.
