Couldn't tell you. I just buy a bale at the small nursury in my area. Pine straw in this neck of the woods (Cincinnati) in brought in from out of state most likely. You don't see it often. It's wood mulch 99% of the time in these parts. I will say that it looks exactly like the pine straw mulch I see on while on vacation in South Carolina though... If that helps at all. Long needles too.

The bogs... I still need to thin out the back one. Trim the blooms also.
This guy gets the neat pin stripped blooms... kinda neat
And the Reptialian Rose that I got last year has put up an enormous pitcher. The crown isn't even that big. I wouldn't have expected anything this size for a while. I can't wait to see how it does as the year progresses.
S. Reptillian Rose getting it's color... amazing plant.
S. "Tina" I don't get how some info on this plant say it's a cross of a few types of purps. I have two of these guys. One is along the size of a purpurea (you can see it on the left the bog 2 shot below)... but this other one is 8" tall ... has the form of a catesbaei. Very upright, large mouth, etc. There definitely has to be something thing else in the gene pool on this one.
S. 'Leah Wilkerson' pushing 32"
S. Noid - This guy has a great wavy lid and curl at the end.
S. Flava Rub Clone L x BestClone (Wang)
S. Noid - kinda cool with the red mouth/throat and white top
S. "Llama" ("Green monster on the right) - This guy has great pale colors...
S. Flava Ornata "Improved black veins" - can't wait till he grows up. Looking good so far. (Wang)
S. Noid- this is a noid I have had for years now but I typically don't let flower. I am glad I did since there are these great looking peach blooms. I have one for sale too if anyone is interested.

This one was labeled "Double Wow" (the three pitchers on the right)... though I am not finding any info on it. I got it from Don (can't find his last name) that was thinning his huge collection down years back out of Toledo Ohio. Others were there as well, so maybe someone knows.
Those plants, and bogs, are looking great! The S. "double wow" looks pretty impressive. I recall Don Neiter saying that he did his own crosses, so that may be something that he created. Then again, it may just be a lost, or less known, hybrid given the amount of time that he was in the hobby.
mikee: I have just joined this forum so will make a few mistakes - So here goes I have recently started my collection and now have some 150 to 200 plants during my first year. I have some very nice flowers spikes and would like to propagate.

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.

stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!
