    S. purpurea is the only pitcher plant where you need to pour rainwater into the traps. The hoods are open to let rain in and prey drowns and bacteria breaks it down for the plant.

    The pitchers also last for a few months before they die off. They will go brown gradually, when the pitcher looks completely dead you can snip it off.

    Your plant looks like it's doing fine though. I can see a new pitcher about to open in the center.

    As states in the other post, they collect rain water.
    Did you just get the plant? Might be in a little shock to new conditions.

    Well all pitcher plants can collect water to some degree, but do some neps use rainwater to break down their prey?

    but the fly's body makes him float ontop of the water tho, so how does it digest if its over the water, i fed my pitcher with a (struggling) fly, and he jus buzzes over the water and doesnt drown
