    perhaps it is a albino, due to lack of some tissue culture apparatus, today i had pick them out and send it to my friends, hope he will be able to grow them, if so, we might have a pure white sarracenia....haha

    As in animals, albinism in plants is caused by lack of pigment. However, in plants the lack is fatal because the missing pigment is chlorophyll. Without chlorophyll, the albino plant has no way to manufacture the food needed for survival and growth to maturity. Albino seedlings usually live only about a week, but albino root suckers tend toward a bit more longevity because they can draw food from the parent plant.

    If it is a true albino plant, it wont survive..sorry..
    (varigated plants do have chlorophyll, as do "anthocyanin-free" plants..
    those are quite different from true albinos)
