    It's trying to be a Genlisea, but it needs to learn to be happy with who it is.

    I think we could all learn a little something from this sad little Sarracenia.

    Thanks for all opinions. The soil is pure sphagnum. Never let it dormant.May be this reason.(Now is winter).
    Thank again.

    Definitely a dormancy problem. Trying to sleep, but it is too warm. Find a way to cool the rhizome, and the plant will do the rest. Without it, your plant will not last the new growing season. It REQUIRES dormancy!

    Those twisted leaves are usually called "phyllodia". They are normal formed just prior to dormancy for Sarracenia.

    They happen on my flava too. They then uncurl and form normally. This year it will probably be it's first dormancy (TC plant).
    The phyllodia on flava are different from this.

    Every species, hybrid, or cultivar that form phyllodia (not all do), produce phyllodia that are unique.

    like S. leucophylla? I heard that they produce those modified leaves during the summer and then go back to making bigger leaves, but mine produced lance shaped leaves with little tiny openings and lids.
