    Personally, I would mix sand and peat and have a layer of LFS on top.

    Well I don't want to mess with it too much at this point, it was stressed as it is.
    So most of the sand covering the rhizome and right around the pitchers was carefully removed. I have noticed that it produced two sprouts (hew pitchers i guess) under the sand and one of them I accidentally damaged (cut of the tip) while removing the sand with my makeshift spoon. I'll post the pics later today.

    Looking good Gill!
    Congrats!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned earlier, but my opinion is that the plant will get the benefit of a good percentage of the light being reflected from the white sand, encouraging red coloration via increased light exposure IMO (this effect obviously depends upon the specimens genetics concerning pigmentation). The last picture shows that even if it is a little bit covered, the other leaves above ground are still going through photosynthesis, producing sugars, so even with the crown covered, other leaves will pop given time!

    Great plant btw, love the colors!

    I thought I'd update on the growth of the plant
    Pics were taken yesterday night:




    Since the emergence of the new pitcher, two more pitchers popped out:


    It looks to me that there are two growth points now, even though when I replotted the rhizome seemed inseparable.
