    I can attest to the S. purpurea filling its pitchers outside, without any help from me. After all, nobody is going around to the swamps, filling the pitchers! LOL!

    that would be an interesting profession..
    might be fun for one day, but after that, not so much..

    mosquitos especially would be a concern..

    So to sum up then ...

    Sarracenia purpurea take on water naturally, which would indicate to be fine if done in a close (indoor environment).

    Hmm that was easy!

    Negative, if you wish to keep your purp looking that nice you will have to switch to outdoor growing. There simply isnt enough direct unfiltered sunlight in a windowsill. You've got a very nice looking purp venosa dont let it go down the drain!

    It's lacking rain wind, but the sun's south west facing....
