    Thanks for the tip! I had no idea they could eat blood worms, my plant seems to be doing fine at catching it's own bugs but I'm sure in the winter that will be less and less. I also have a bearded dragon, are the crickets I feed her okay for a once in a while feeding if my plant isnt catching enough bugs??

    I don't see why not. In nature they eat flies, bees, ants, etc. so a cricket seems safe enough. Heck, I've seen videos where a stray frog, snake or mouse was found in a pitcher, lol.

    That could very well be correct. I have a "baby" of the one I mentioned and the pitchers look just like what she posted, but there are minor differences to the lid and internal pitcher coloring. Hard to tell with baby pitchers because many don't yet have the adult characteristics.

    Looking at pictures of N. Sanguinea on Google and some of the baby plants on there look very similar to my plant, I guess only time will truly tell

    It's almost definitely a sanguinea. The orange clones that get distributed by the big suppliers look like your plant does. It's an attractive and hardy form of the species.
