Anyone know what Sarracenia this is?

Recommended Posts

I call it Medusa for the flailing thin pitcher wings that twist and turn uncontrolled.The actual pitch trap and hood are so small in comparison to the long skinny wing of the body. I'd be grateful for your help please with identification. Much appreciated!  :D

I don't you'll ever know for sure beyond the fact that it's a hybrid. It looks like there may be some leucophylla and psittacina in the mix, but there may be more to it than that. Medusa sounds like a perfectly good name for it as long as the name hasn't already been taken!

Thanks so much Andy for your sharing your knowledgeable insights. I am grateful for your expertise in being able at least to identify the various species that make up this wacky hybrid. I wish I had such a talent as yours.

Hi Alexis,

It gets 6-8 hours of sun per day, sitting fully exposed on a large stone open patio. It's definitely not starved for sunlight.

Might even have some S. minor in its history.

Whatever it is, it looks like it would benefit from splitting and repotting!
