Hey folks, I got 2 rhizomes from CC back when they were selling them, and as you probably know, spring is here. One of the two I purchased is already making pitchers rather fast, but since CC doesn't provide ID when you get rhizomes from them, I'm wondering what this Sarracenia is. I'm leaning towards flava, but I'm not entirely sure. Please help

Definitely flava, but I'm seeing a bit of oreophila in there too.

I agree with the others. Definitely a S. flava. Possibly a little bit of hybridizing, but that looks to be mostly, if not all, S. flava genes.

So I used Google lense to see if it turned out to be a flava, but according to the cross reference Google lense made with a new picture I took of a bigger and newer pitcher, against the other pictures found online, it says mine is oreophila. Maybe I'll just say it's a flava/ oreophila hybrid Image

With this pitcher, I think we could say for certain that this is a Flava. Mine looks identical to this.

Right, like I said in the first post, I got this one from CC, and their posting for flava states that they're either var flava or var rugelii. My sarracenia knowledge is almost nonexistent so I had to look up those varieties. From the pictures I found on the web, this pitcher doesnt have too much red on the throat, and not so much venation. So it's maybe a hybrid?

I'm likely wrong somewhere, but any input would be appreciated
