Actually, that is a Sarracenia x 'Judith Hindle', or a type of North American Pitcher Plant. I have heard of Target calling these Darlingtonia (cobra lilies), which is unfortunate... For the caresheet, click here: PFT Sarracenia Care sheet GOOD LUCK, and WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!

I bet thats the same plant that Vertigo was talking about earlier this week. That is a very nice looking Judith Hindle.

what a beautiful plant , too bad that it was labeled cobra lily , i hate it when companies mislabel things and people get all mixed up . i should check at my local target to see if they got any that i can save but then again my target thinks that the carnivorous planst will bite your head off

Hi al885!! That is a very nice looking judith hindle!! I have a hindle too. In fact i have a picture of mine under my name on the left side of this post. It looks different because i inverted the pic., thought it looked cooler that way. Looks like your's is in straight long fiber sphagnum. Did it come potted that way or did you do it? Either way it looks really cool like that!

Im going to put it in a fridge for dormancy this winter. when it comes out of dormancy i want to use artificial light along side growing VFTs. Is florescent lights good enough? i heard it is as long as they are close

I went to target today and found a whole bunch of S. x 'Wrigleyanas' in very healthy condition. I had to buy one.

It is in the same set up as that one, and it is from the same supplier, NurseryMen's Exchange, Inc. Half moon bay, CA. I think I am going to have to repot it in a draining pot heres a pic.

Yup, that's the exact one I was talking about. Told you guys it was a nice plant.

The glass vase would be fine, actually you don't really need to worry about that this time of year, especially since it'll be most likely going dormant soon.

If you're worried about it rotting in the glass, just water it a little less.

I thought i read that increases humidity around the plant?

Well the vase looks fairly tall. Any humidity that will be achieved from the tray will be long dissipated before it has a chance to reach the pant. Water trays are used to actually water the plant. Some plants in very short pots may recieve a slight increase in humidity from the tray, but in general, the humidity from the trays is negligable.
