    By the way...has anyone else had a problem where the pitchers on S. x wrigleyana wouldn't open w/out help? Mine seems perfectly healthy, but the pitchers just stay sealed shut unless I give them a bit of a squeeze.
    pitchers stay swelled up with air and ready to open for a few days before they actually open, just be patient

    Don't know why they won't open sometimes, but they won't, and putting the squeeze on them doesn't seem to hurt'em, so carry on. My own s. X wrigleyana seems to have some that open, and some that won't. I don't squeeze them myself, I just let them grow however they want to.

    Being that you got it from Lowe's, I would say it is 'Scarlet Belle', as that is one of the few that have been in tissue-culture production and are sold to all those places that put them in those little pots with the clear dome. Highly unlikely that Lowe's would be selling a different wrigleyana, but I guess you never know.

    As others have said, the plant is definitely light-starved. The pitchers should be almost a bright red.
