    Growing in the ground and growing in a pot are different. I would worry about the pot freezing too hard/dry.

    I don't think you're going to be able to compact that plant. The pitchers are nice and tall, and that's good. Higher light levels shouldn't do any compaction because a) there's no internodal space to shrink, b) the plant is made for high light environments, c) the plant isn't suffering from lack of light (etiolation.)

    Plant's looking healthy and good.

    Yeah, he looks fine- it looks like the rhizome you got was of a pretty old plant- next year when it makes more pitchers it'll look a bit better balanced- I think the perception of "too tall" is enhanced by the low pitcher count. I just saw tons of S.purpurea ssp. purpurea in a sort-of local bog and the older ones looked pretty much exactly like what you have there (tho most of em were heterophylla but that's another story)

    Oh, ok. Thanks guys. That makes me worry much less. The guy I got it from said it was a four-year-old plant grown from seed.

    The large wings are signs of the plant trying to grow more tissue area for photosynthesis. The plant didn't have much to work with earlier one, so this has probably prompted the rather impressive wings! Either that, or you have a nice gentic varient there

    It will probably look more like the ones you've seen later on, or next year.

    So, are the large wings a good thing then? I'm kinda confused.

    So here's an update on my plant.

    Notice the shorter, more compact pitcher, and darker veins.




    Newest pitcher.


    YAY (moss)

    This plant also catches wasps all the time. There's always a wasp squirming around in the pitcher.
