I received a Sarracenia flava some time ago from a seller on eBay, its largest pitcher was already broken, and the others top part came off. It made new growth within a week, however, it has taken it months to make the pitchers, and one just opened the other day, about 1/3 of the largest pitcher, and it's grown about 3x slower than my Cephalotus has. All my other Sarracenia are pumping out pitchers like a kid puts quarters in the little metal arm grab machine at the Wal-Mart entrance hoping to get a stuffed animal.
The media is wet like my other Sarracenia, it is in the exact same conditions. I don't know if this is it, but, it's in like a 4 inch tall pot, and 2 or so inches wide, the media is slightly more than halfway down the pot (the surface), then the plant is potted. So I think it'd have 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch of root space. Could it be just over crowded? The original pitchers were larger than 6 inches I'm sure, but smaller than a foot.
