Heres some seedlings grown from a mixed packet of seeds.

Can anyone tell what they are?

This one looks like some sort of rubra. What do you guys think?

At that small undeveloped size, they could be anything. Maybe by the end of this growing season, or the next, the traits you need to to I.D. them will start to show. Right now, my oreophila seedlings, and my rubra seedlings, as well as the flava seedlings, look very much the same.

Good! Like I tell one and all, if you cannot be patient in this hobby, find something else! CP can make you wait for what seems like forever, but the end results are usually worth it. Try using the 24/7 growing system. There is a sticky in the pitcher plant forum covering year round growing of seedlings to get mature plants faster. It works well, and you wait a whole lot less!

The first plant I posted has been putting out some new pitchers that look very different from before. Any ideas on this one?

Very nice. It's probably S.x readii.

Your all green seedling could be purpurea ssp. purpurea forma heterophylla, but it's too early to say really.

Any idea on the other parent?

I really like the way this one is turning out. :)

The first pics are old ones - they're the same as the ones below.

The bottom one could still start looking more like leucophylla when it gets a bit bigger. Another possibility is that it's a sister of the possible S.x readii.
