    I find the purpurea the absolute easiest CP to grow. Even easier than a VFT or a cape.

    Every one that I've picked up at local Lowe's and HD's have grown to terrific size and color.

    I then give them away to the "houseplant ladies" at work in an effort to infect them with the "CP bug". All the ladies remark on how pretty the purp is and they all love the deep purple color. I have to remind them that those are not flowers, but rather, pitchers; modified leaves.

    After a week of good direct sunlight, it has gotten a little color. Scroll up to see how green it was.




    Some of them are starting to turn brown and the leaves seem to look like its been burnt. Is the sun too hot or is this just a side affect of having to come out of a really humid room with no sunlight?(That's how the nursery kept them)

    I bet you're reading this huh?

    There's almost never too much sunlight for Sarrs. But it turning purple is a good sign, and I guess some of the traps are turning brown due to it being away from sunlight.
    Edit: Nice signature. xD

    Peanut,

    Don't expect a whole lot of color to show up right now. In general, existing leaves may darken a bit, but the true coloration comes out when the leaves are young and developing. As this plant progresses into spring and summer, you will see that all the new growth will exibit the beautiful coloration one would expect of this species.

    Good luck with your new baby.

    Cheers
    Steve

    You're Right! Here is a pic of a new leaf that's growing and its brownish/red!
    PS. Are the pitchers suppose to dry up? The liquids keep turning into a crusty sugary looking thing.

    I bet you're reading this huh?
