    I will take a picture when I get home. They are standing up for the most part. They start growing straight up, then the rain knocked them down so they were leaning to the side. Then they started turning themselves back upright. They aren't all there, but a lot of them are now in the upright position, just leaned out.

    They're probably 6-8" pots, that are fairly deep. They're sitting in 2" water trays and are on the steps of the front porch in full sun.

    Did the pitchers fill with water in the storms?

    No, I don't think so. I won't swear to it, but most of them were younger pitchers that hadn't fully opened or were just starting to.

    Early season growth on S. rubra can be weak and floppy and it looks there is at least some rubra in the plant in the pot with the most leaves. I do stake them so they look tidy early season, but the later pitchers are more turgid. Nothing to worry about they just do that the HCW shouldnt do that.

    Cheers

    I know it varies with the specific plant, but leucos very commonly grow very thin and unimpressive pitchers in spring.

    I did post a picture of my new Leuco, and I hope it does get better pitchers, but it's the bushy NoID that I'm having issues with. I really think it'll end up straightening itself up. I just didn't know if I should add a ring to help it out for a while.
