    That is normal. It is the bacterial action and weak enzmes in the pitcher doing that. No fear, everything is normal.

    Hi Dionaea,Parasuco
    Plants grown indoors are more likely to fungal attacks because of air movement and lighting, but with my purps outside they seem more resilient to decay, Nep G is absolutlely right when there will be no problem as most of the pitchers on my Purps are brimming with decaying insects (I have 400+ Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea growing outside!). With my greenhouse grown plants, occasionally and I mean very occasionally on a brand new open pitcher especially when there is no liquid in the pitcher something starts rotting down there you can get a dead patch occuring. But this is never a problem to the plant itself

    Ohh yeah! I am good! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I knew I was right as that is the Sarracenia I specialize in! S.Purpurea. But my favorite Sarracenia is S.Purpurea spp. Purpurea. I LOVE the flowers and near black-red pitchers they get! At least that is the most comomon pitcher colorization I get when they are grown in full sunlight. I will get a bronzy colored one if they are in shaded conditions. I now am on my search for S. Purpurea spp. Purpurea F. Heterophylla this summer in the bogs I go to. I am going to do a more thorough search of them this time through. But yep I know my stuff on Purpurea spp. Purpurea! I am not a complete dummy on the other Sarracenia either! I just know alot about the Purpurea Purpurea as it was the very first Sarracenia I ever saw and since then it has been my favorite. But I am clearly an advanced grower on Sarracenia period! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] So I know my stuff and Mike knows his stuff! Espically if he grows 400+ S.Purpurea spp. Purpurea's!!!!!!!!! Wow! :o:o:o
