This is the pitcher from the second rhizome I got from CC back when they were selling them. This bad boy is around 18 inches tall, but because it's the tallest pitcher I have, as well as the skinniest one, it broke near the top while it was still soft.

I managed to prop it up again and hold it in position while it hardened. Well, it did and it opened for the first time yesterday. Since the rhizome came without ID, I'd appreciate any possibilities of what this one could be.

Thanks again, everyone!

Gonna agree with Nepenthes0260. Just a guess but I think the flava parent was probably flava var. flava “boring clone” So the leuco parent definitely brought something to the table...

Difficult from that pitcher picture, wait till the next more robust and indicative pitcher arrives and we can have a better guess.

Cheers

Technically, this is the second pitcher...as I broke the first one by accident. It is quite a slow grower, but I'll be on the lookout for the newer one that shows up!

Not really an update, but found these on the plant today. Can they be sarracenia snacks or should I just get rid of then?

It's been some time since I replied to this thread, but the very same plant that produced the pitcher from above produced this one. The mouth is ~1 inch in diameter and is a couple of inches taller. Now what do you guys think it could be?

I’ll take a wild guess and say S. rubra x leucophylla

To me it looks like Flava x Leucophylla, height seems to allude to that. Nice plant though!

Agree with hungry carnivores -- looks like S. flava x leucophylla to me. Very nice plant!
