    Providing these are Sarr seedlings they should be S. leucophylla are otherwise their is a slim possibility of S. purpurea.

    the first two leaves are the cotyledons, but that third tiny growth in the center is the first pitcher!

    Whoot!

    Anything I should do from here on out? Currently they are in a plastic bowl in a gallon ziploc bag. The thing has no real drainage which I didn't think of beforehand. I think it would be best to let them grow to size and then transplant them?

    Leave them where they are and keep them in the same conditions as your other sarras. You'll probably have to wait at least a year until they need transplanting.

    Well keep them in plenty of light and use only rainwater. You can skip dormancy this year for quicker maturation. I keep mine on a windowsill indoors in winter.

    Sounds good. Do they need the high humidity I've been providing? Also, how long should I expect to wait before I get recognizable pitchers(seems at least a few months)?

    Thanks!

    They need highish humidity but nothing extreme. Air movement is fairly important, so there's no need to cover them up or anything.

    The first miniture pitchers are forming now in the centre. They'll be ready in a couple of weeks.
