There are a bout a gazillion pitcher plant varieties on Dave. I'd like to add pictures and zip code reports but I'm not sure which one this is. Can anyone help? Some have more red than others but they are all came from the same plant. I'll post a close up next.

I am not expert on identification, but I would guess Sarracenia Leucophylla -- the White Top Pitcher, which is native to the Florida panhandle. I wouldn't be able to guess what type. When it flowers, post pictures of the flowers. That helps. :)

That was my guess too, how tall are the pitchers?

That's a good question. The leucophylla can be really tall.

It looks like it may be one of the fertile ones too. See if you can fertilize it to get seeds. :)

What do you think this is? Psittacina x what. Looks like a scarlet belle x Psittacina maybe. Scarlet belle is Psittacina x Leucophylla isn't it?
Anyway its nice though!

I definately want one! Where is the best place other than cobra plants to order plants from? I know they have more variety in the spring/summer but just wondered about other sources.
