    All of the ones I saw from BE at my local CP nursery were purple with purple peristomes. Should color up in good lighting. Mine had the darkest purple peristome they had, that's why I picked it. In good lighting it should color up to have purple pitchers, I can see some color coming in on the upper part of the pitcher in the picture you provided.

    Here is my pitcher that got squished (I guess in shipping from BE to my local CP nursery)...


    Here is the pitcher that formed when adjusting to the CP nursery...


    From this you can conclude that the lighting is a big factor. If yours is in a terrarium, it may be more on the green side, but should still look nice. At BE that had optimum lighting, causing the purple... So with good lighting, you can make yours look like the one in the first pic I showed.

    Mine seems to love 50-55F nights and 70s during the day. It hasn't gone above 80F since it is winter, but I would assume that it would be fine in 80s and can survive a few days of 90s, some of my finicky HLs were fine through a few 95F days in the summer. I think HL are a lot more flexible than people think they are. A couple of individuals from TF told me that if my temps went above 85F, my jacquelineae would die... Well it survived maybe ten 95F days throughout the summer. As long as you have nights in the 50s, it will be fine IME.

    this is what mine looks like after popping


    and this is after coloring up not actually the same pitcher, these were taken at the same time so the darker one is less mature and as you can see the peristome is getting more charactor on the newer pitcher
