    well..they will definitely be happy staying out tonight i know in simi valley it rarely gets below freezing. This is my first year growing carnivorous plants, just learning from my mistakes. Im doing rather well with my 2 VFT's.

    Sarracenia are tougher than you'll think. They probably are S. purpurea, just deprived of light for a long time. S. purpurea are also found as far north as the 64 parallel in Canada, so cold weather is no big deal for them. I'd take them out of the vase and put them in a plastic pot. The glass is probably what is causing the burning.

    The glass has always worried me..for thee fact it could act as a magnifying effect. I'm taking that advice and trnasplating tomorrow. I have another sarracenia in a round glass deep dish...same story. Would it be fine to transplant together in the same pot?? Also, what to d with the pitchers that are burnt?? Only the top is..but for the most part it is still green.

    Leave them be, the green parts will photosynthesize which the plant needs. They may be unsightly but I don't think trimming off the brown parts looks much better. Once you get some healthy leaves grown out you can trim them off.
