    I found this for 7 bucks at a local nursery here in Fort Collins yesterday. Of course it was unlabeled. The pitchers are about 8 inches tall. I'm guessing S. rubra or some cross with S. flava. What's all of your take on it?

    Looks like a light-starved S. flava to me.

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -

    That's a pretty good deal for a plant that size ! over here they sell cps that are as small as 2-3 inches for 12 bucks !!! + tax ! My guess on the id of this plant would be either an S. flava or an S. alata , have any idea what company it came from ?

    You are so lucky to pick up a plant from a store.

    I thought for sure S. flava as well, in fact I had S. flava in my post, and then erased it. I guess I just couldn't believe that a local nursery would have an S. flava. Also, the way it clumped with multiple crowns is characteristic of some S. rubra I've had. I thought maybe just a deformed S. rubra due to poor growing conditions, but looking at the pitchers again, there is no way they resemble S. rubra. I suppose S. flava or alata or some cross between the two is probably correct. I sure wish the commercial growers would lable what they grow, so you would no for sure what the taxonomy of the plant is.
