... it's spring here.
EDIT: and we haven't had a super cold spell or anything. We're up to 8 hours of sunshine per day (up from 5 in winter) and heading towards 9/10 hours in summer.

Where did you buy it *from*?
If it came from the northern hemisphere, it could actually be going dormant..
If that is the case, you bought in your winter, but it was the plants summer..
Its now your Spring, but its the plants Autumn.
It will soon be your Summer, but it will be the plants winter.
It might take a few years to "flip its clock"..
If it *didnt* come from the northern hemisphere, then it's not happy about something..
we will try to figure out what..
It's from the the southern hemisphere.
...I believe it's even from a similar latitude to what I'm at.
heatherfeather knows the weather!
Hm maybe it is just so stressed out from everything that you mentioned it had to deal with?
A leuco by any other name would still be as gluttonous.
I concur. Sometimes plants just have a bad string of luck. I would advise you to keep up the excellent care and use as few pesticidal and fungicidal products as possible. She should bounce back and thrive similar to your purp. It *could* be next year before you see good pitcher production though.
