    Is this normal?

    I planted this Sarracenia outside a few months ago and over the last two months the normal looking pitchers have been drying up. There's tons of new growth but most of them have this curved non-hollow look to them. Is this normal?

    Most? No, only S. flava and S. leucophylla and hybrids of them. But, yes, this is normal. You will have pitchers again after dormancy .

    you have 2 good looking pitchers coming up on the right side there S. leucophylla, oreophila, and flava are ones that produce the most noticeable phyllodia... but i think all Sarrs do it right before dormancy.... its normal. wait until the weather starts to get cooler

    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer
