Just got this plant about about a month ago as a baby and left my plants in my dad’s care for about a week as I went on vacation. I come back to see my plant had grown a whole pitcher while I was gone! So exciting, I was nervous to leave them with my dad, but he followed instructions well :D

So what is a Mississippi pitcher plant? I see you got it from Carnivorous Plant Nursery. Can you share the link?

To be honest with you, I got it from their (basically blind bag) beginner set of a pitcher plant, a Venus fly trap, and a sun dew. I’m not exactly sure if it is honest with me or not(as I don’t see anything really like it on their actual website) but I looked up pictures of just “Mississippi pitcher plant” and it seemed about right lol :D

That sarr was probably "named" after the location where it was found. If it's from a blind bag, I recommend you wait for the pitcher to grow out and properly indentify it (if you would like to know which plant you actually got). I usually like to do this when I get unlabeled plants since I like to know what I'm growing. If not, you could keep the sarr as a mystery plant.
