    because they should be dormant right now and pitchers do nothing but rot and die right now. wait for spring when they start to grow again

    It could also be for easier packaging of the plants, ensuring less damage, people usually do this, because pitcher will grow back.

    You'll learn after a season or two - every once in a while you'll snag a newly grown pitcher and it'll tear like your last dollar bill at a vending machine that won't take coins. If the pitchers are already damaged, often it just looks nicer to give them a nice clean edge with a pair of scissors. They can't really catch bugs very well with the top cut off, but they still can take in sunlight, and that's like 90% of the pitcher's function anyways.

    Yes. And with a new base too right next to the original.
