Help in ID-ying these two plants...

GD001February 7, 2012

Hi everyone!

This is my first post on the forum :)

I need some help in ID-ying a couple of plants I recently bought.

the first is a succulent (or so I suppose) that is have oppositely positioned leaves and red flowers (hanging, bell-shaped, 4 petals and with 8 stamens; I didn't see any female organ).

The second is actually a carnivorous pitcher plant.

I sat and researched what it might be exactly.

I narrowed it down to two possibilities:

- Sarracenia purpurea

- Sarracenia rosea

The exact species and variety are what I'm trying to pick out but i just can't seem to do so myself.

I read that one of the main differences lies in the flower. However mine hasn't flowered yet.

Hope I've provided enough info you to help me ID these two plants. Thanks a lot in advance!!! :D

p.s. I tried directly attaching the photos using the "[IMG] URL [/IMG]" but when previewing they didn't show. Can anyone show me (or link me to a post) how to attach the photo so that they show up directly in the thread. Thanks! :D

You'd probably have more luck in the "Name That Plant!" Forum, linked below.

To post pictures, use the img src="URL"> code. For instance, img src="http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s510/GD01/DSC_4349edited.jpg "> produces:

BTW, don't forget to add a width attribute for larger pictures. That will help keep the thread from being hard to read.

I would be surprised if your bought picture plant turned out to be a pure species specimen. Most I've seen are hybrids. In any event, I'd think IDing it from only the pictures you gave would be difficult at best.
