    It doesn't get very cold there... It has been lowest of about -3C and highs of 13C... maybe they dried out? I have a water butt to stop that from happening, but it's possible... I just assumed the pitchers dying like that was normal? My flava over here just dies back completely in winter...

    im not sure how it is in the states but my sar pitchers dont die back like that, the browning usually starts with spots and around the edges, and much darker, not that even light brown.

    Nah, from England! Hmmmm, here my flava starts at the lid, then down, until the whole pitcher is like a brown skeleton... or at least I think... shame it isn't a picture of the crown, then we might have a better idea! I've only had plants for a year and a bit though, and I've only really ever had a flava, not a purpurea... hmm...
