Hya fellas! I just found out today that a local pond supply shop has a good selection of Sarracenia which I have wanted to add to my collection for some time now! Needless to say I ignored all the traffic signs in my haste to get over there! LOL Its only ten minutes from my house too! I can't believe I've been driving by it for years and never noticed! Anyways I purchased a Dana's Delight and I intend to collect the others eventually, she had Rubra, Flava and one that started with a 'T' as well. Many of them had stowaways and that's why I chose this particular pot. I know they are sundews but I don't know the variety, up until now I collected VFT's only. I am also about to build an aquatic plant garden out of a 55 gallon fish tank which will include bladderworts as well as the very rare and highly unusual waterwheel plant which is basically an underwater VFT. Here are some pics!

Congrats on the new Sarracenia! Dana's Delight is a really beautiful one :)

That would probably be S. leucophylla 'Tarnok', which has really unusual flowers.

I live about 45 min. South of Atlanta, GA. Itsbhot and humid so pretty much perfect for most CP's! I have no idea what type of sundews they are that's kind of why I posted this!
