    a pic would be nice...
    Is there any new growth or has that stopped also?
    How long have you had the plant?
    Did it get dormancy this year?

    a .pic would be great, sounds like either too much light, ro not enough water, if it is too much light, all you ahve to do is mo ve it to a lower light area, and slowly move it into the sun, it will adapt in time

    its basically impossible to give a sarr "too much light", so that likely isnt the problem..

    yes, existing pitchers that have been grown in too little light can fry and burn if suddenly exposed to more light, but thats ok, because as new pitchers emerge they will be able to withstand the increased light..
    more light might be "bad" for the current pitchers, but more light will be FAR better for the plant as a whole in the long run.

    the spring growth on my sarrs all fries to a crisp when I first put them outdoors for the season.
    I grow them indoors next to a window from February - April because its still too cold to put them outdoors..all the growth that grows indoors is not acclimated to "outdoor light"..as soon as I put them on the other side of the window they literally burn and turn brown on one side..
    but thats ok! because the full direct sunlight is what the plant needs..
    those early spindly weak burnt pitchers will just get cut off in a month or so when a new healthy crop of pitchers has emerged..
    think in terms of the plant as a whole, not in terms of protecting the wimpy indoor growth..(exact same thing applies to VFT's..)

    so.."too much sun" is basically impossible..unless you live in the desert.
    sarrs need FULL direct intense sunlight pounding right down on them, as much as you can give them..


    Jon,
    what kind of media is your plant growing in?
    how long have you had it?
    did it get a dormancy this winter?
    what kind of light is it getting?
    indoors or outdoors?
    Scot

    you'd be surprised at some of the burn marks on my S. leuco. Tarnok, and S. Oreo x Flava, as well as S. flava, I put them in full sun in the greenhouse, they got burned within the hour

    Scorching in the greenhouse can be caused by the lack of moving air high up. Opening louvre vents prevents this.


    Back to the original question, what is your flava potted in?
