    if it looks like there is fertilizer build up, which is quite possible do to the fact you got it at a regular nursery. i say repot it. i dont think many of the hybrids that would likly be for sale at one of these greenhouses will be to finiky about being repotted. some new soil and do as schoalty advises and place it on a tray of pebbles so it stays just moist and not wet. give it another month and see what happens. it may go into shock for awhile but it seems to be a healthy plant so it should be just fine. just my 2 cents.

    Wicked, glad to hear it looks okay, thanks, I will post an update in a week or two (or whenever anything changes, at least)

    Again, thank you all for the help, just knowing it looks okay makes me feel a lot better (the last CP I bought was a non-variegated sarracenia and I killed it real good, I clipped off the dormancy "pitchers" cos it looked "leggy" to me)

    now off to decide what to repot with [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Sorry to double-post (some folks hate that)
    Thanks to everyone who responded to help.
    Schloaty, your "limb" was the ticket, way too wet, the thing is growing like mad now, its first pitcher will be good enough to photograph in a week or so;
    I'm glad I bought it now, it has been a great confidence booster, "easy" neps really are pretty easy to grow, the N.Ventricosa (you were right Zongyi [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]) I bought is going nuts too....
