    I've just spotted these in my local Asda (as well as some surprisingly big VFTs). I believe they were £7 each.

    Yes, that was it. They are selling vfts and even Drosera capensis at the same price.Not worth buying the capensis as like most people it's a weed in my collection. I wouldn't normally buy CPs from ASDA, but the S. purpurea looked quite good and would probably only get killed by anyone else so I rescued it. However, the care instructions aren't worth the paper they're printed on.

  2. Thanks for the info Richard. I saw you posted a photo of a plant a while back. I've never had any luck with seed germination before so I bought this from danl82. If I get any seed this year I'll try again. BTW do they self pollinate?

  3. Saw this on sale in ASDA and couldn't resist rescuing it. After all a member of the general public is likely to kill it, especially with the instructions on the packaging.

    Removed from packaging and given a good flush through with RO water and put in semi-shade until it's acclimatised. Should make a good plant by next year.

  4. Well, he plant looks too green to me - has it been kept in shaded conditions? Ornata should have yellowish-green or vivid yellow pitchers in direct sunlight and be lined with variable, dark red or purple reticulate veins. From the evidence shown here I would say it seems to be a S. flava var flava. However, the lid and spout on the lip of your plant look like examples of rubricorpora from Wewahitchka, FL. I would try giving it full sunlight and seeing if it darkens. I've got plants in the sun all day which have still not developed the red colouration.

  5. A further update.

  7. Nice plants Plantsman89. We all probably have what we know as atropurpureas from Florida. You may not have been on the forum when we had a detailed discussion on the subject led by Kiwi Earl (see here). Earl believes that only the plants from the Carolinas should be called atropurpurea and those from FL are really rubricorpora. I don't know if any final conclusions were reached or consensus agreed on what we should call Florida the S. flava var. atropurpurea?
