In my intro., I promised to get these plants properly ID'd.

I bought them online. Knowing full well, "Some Sellers, Just Sell !".

I fancy myself as having, "A Decent Green Thumb", and an itchy online research finger !

So here goes,

The photos were taken by me. Then the app ID'd them and provided, care instructions .

For me, "Proper Care", is critical, to my having success.

Tell me if, "the ID." is correct, as well as the, "Care Instructions" ?

Thx in advance !

Btw - Excuse my work bench !
The Crimson Pitcher(?) was sold as a "Judith Hindle".

First pic, intermedia, probably correct. Could be a capillaris, pic doesn't enlarge well to see.
Second, lots of Sarrs produce phyllodia, including leucophylla, probably best to wait until it produces actual pitchers to be certain.
Third, the two-fer. 3A, I'm going to say not a purpurea, but it also looks to be young yet, so I could be wrong. I've seen juvenile purp pitchers that don't look anything like mature purp pitchers.
3B, not anglica, capensis.

I’d say:

First pic- Dx tokaiensis (not intermedia)
Second pic- hard to tell. With only phyllodia it can be a leuco but also can be a flava or any other upright species/hybrid. ‘Judith Hindle’ is probably the correct ID.
Third pic- doesn’t look like purp to me. The hood is too flopped over. My guess is ‘Bug Bat’ or some other minor hybrid.
Fourth pic- D. capensis (not anglica)

Well these guys have the ID's taken care of, but I wanted to chip in and say that all of these are full sun plants. I have no idea why that app is recommending indirect light because that's how you get them looking as ratty and colorless as they do in these pictures.

Yeah I generally consider fertilization an advanced cultivation technique. Something to worry about a few years down the road.
