    If it is dead, what should I do about it? Also why is it red? all the other pitchers are Green (still a bit red however) If you have seen my earlier posts of pictures.

    Purpurea pitchers usually get redder with age, so it's a sign that it is old. Yes it is starting to brown and die away but you must understand that the pitchers do have a limited life span and do not last forever. New pitchers should replace old ones at about the same rate so you will have almost the same amount of pitchers almost all the time. (except during dormancy of course)

    A lot of topics these days are about a trap or pitcher dying. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    I would personally leave it alone as the rest of the pitcher is still alive. This way it can finish digesting any meals it has left in the pitcher. You can trim away any brown if you want though.
