    When spring arrives!

    Pitchers don't last forever and die off after a few months. They start with the top turning brown and dry.

    It will start growing soon.
    purp pitchures last a long time, mine has been frozen most of the winter and the pitchures still look nice.

    Yes, mine is now awake and making a new pitcher. Make sure you give it lots of light.

    I got me a purparea from lowes and I was too lazy to acclimate it so I gave it full sun and I repotted it and its leaves turned bright red.
    some of its leaves withered but its now forming a new pitcher thats nice and red.

    Mine has come out of dormancy as well. Did you say it was reddish green? It could be S.purpurea ssp. venosa, that's what I have. If it's green with red veining, then it is (if the pitcher is a reddish color with the lid being greenish with red veining, it's red form).
