Thanks! I'll be sure to take pictures of it for everyone when it arrives :)

- Also Just thinking... to anyone who knows (I'm bad with hybrid stuff...), this plant is technically:

(Sarracenia Flava x Sarracenia Purpurea) x Sarracenia Purpurea - Right?

That plant is hot :)

Catebae's are already pretty hardy, but that extra dash of purpurea makes them even more cold-hardy than standard catesbae's. I'm sure it will grow very well for you.

To your prior question about the naming convention, it's not "Sarracenia x Catesbaei x Purpurea".

It's exactly this:
Sarracenia x [x catesbaei x purpurea]

which equals

Sarracenia x [(flava x purpurea) x purpurea]

but it does also have a common hybrid name:

Sarracenia x melanorhoda

The above three names are all synonymous, but the most proper name for it is Sarracenia x melanorhoda.

Edited for clarity.

That is really a beautiful plant, I just got mine but it is not close to yours but one day I hope, they are a cross between S. Flava and Purple Pitcher or Purpurea, I think the hybrids that are crossed with purpurea are the coolest, great colors and shapes of pitchers and I like them most because they don't get really tall, these I hear get to be about a foot high which is good for me, enjoy it you made a terrific buy.

Thank you to the supplier and the seed manager.
