Unknown Sarracenia

None of the Sarracenia that I have bought were identified, they were either purchased from a local nursery or as random rhizomes.

Here's the largest one I own. I've been thinking it's a Sarracenia minor x alata.

Here's the second. I can't tell if it is a red flava or alata.

This is a different plant, but I'm pretty sure it's the same species.

Here's the last one. I'm pretty sure it's an alata, but just checking.

Thanks for helping!
I agree with you on the first and last ones, looks like a minor x alata and an alata. For your middle one though, I'm not entirely sure. It doesn't look like a pure flava or a pure alata, maybe a hybrid including the two...? But I'm not sure about that, the lid doesn't really seem to fit the description of an alata x flava.
The first one is definitely minor X alata. The middle two look like alata/flava hybrids of some type. The last one looks like an oreophila or possibly flava hybrid. It's really hard to tell for sure though.
I dunno, the top and bottom ones have some rubra-ish striping. Just sayin'.
Alata oftne has the same striping, I would bet it's safe to say the last is alata, as many of my seedling plants are looking like that. Minor x alata is a sure go on the first, but the middle two are definitely confusing. I can see elements of both flava and alata, so it may be an alata backcross with these two. Time may be able to tell, as they don't look full grown either.
Those are Sarracenia...
First one is definitely S. alata x minor. The last one looks like rubra ancestral form.
My alata x minor looks very much like your first 2 pics. I have a pic of it I recently posted in DJ57's plant thread for comparison. The next one may be a hybrid involving flava and/or alata? The last one hard to tell at this stage of growth, could be alata, rubra, or hybrid of such.
