    Pitchers usually take about 10 days to grow from start to finish.

    The pitcher is now only needs to fatten up a little more for the top to completly open. So when does red color appear?

    Coloration depends a lot on the type of plant and the light that it's getting. Most plants (like Sarracenia) take lots of light to reach full coloration, but there are a few oddballs (particularly among the VFTs) that need specific types of light - bright indirect light, dappled shade, etc. - to bring out their true color characteristics. My Sarracenia purpurea tends to produce pitchers that take on a light red a few days after opening, and then the leaves slowly turn a deep purplish burgundy over the course of the next growing season.

    It depends on the plant and environmental factors. Generally the more light the more red they get. Dosing with peat tea might help.
