How long have these pitchers been open? Mine is starting to get darker in the throat, but it’s still pretty green. It’s only been open about three weeks. Also, It’s a division I acquired this spring, so I’m sure that will impact the color too.
It takes a little more than a month after the trap opens in blasting full sun to color up here in Northern California. New, recent divisions might take a season to adjust to their new environment before coloring up to their fullest potential.
Some updated pics 6/11/19. Second smaller pitcher is opening and coloring up, while the big guy has stalled with any further coloring. We really haven't had some nice hot weather in a week or two, and probably another week or two before the heat returns.
drummer230 thanks for sharing! This cultivar does seem to have tons of variation depending on conditions looking at the differences between yours, Mike's and mine. I went through my photo collection and found a picture of when I received the division in June/July 2017 from Dean Cook.
Couple days later out of the greenhouse
Unfortunately in all the pictures I took, I didn't see any more since I probably lost interest since the pitcher was medium sized and not much darker. But still we see how different they are coloring up!

Yeah, it is quite strange. I don’t have morning sun due to some trees (7am-10ish), but the rest of my plants seem to color up with no issues. You can see my rubricorpora and reptilian rose photobombing in the background with nice color. It’s interesting.

Yeah, I’ve been through that thread. I’ve sort of been mulling it over myself, but this division was bought from a very well known seller on this board who states he got his division directly from Phil, so I’m not sure.

Here's mine that I acquired this spring. First trap under my care that's been open about 2 weeks now. It is also shaded by trees until about 10 or 11, as seen in last picture. The side of my plants I rarely photo.
DirtyDivisions: summit I’ve been fine at a constant 95° F under the dome. Once the tiny seedlings have two pitchers I remove the dome and temps go down.

summit: @dirtydivisions Thanks for that! I'm sitting around 87-88F with the dome fully sealed but I wasn't doing that and sacrificing humidity to keep it cooler but I'll go ahead and close it down now!

mikee: Thanks you chofah, there is a great video from The Pitcher Project with Phil Faulisi this was what I was looking for. However it still appears to be wait and see what results come from the cross. Many thanks

Willy: It would be rather silly to expect totally predictable results from a cross. The individual plants grown from the seeds will vary, sometimes quite a bit, even with carefully protected hand pollination. If you open polinate, the variety may be even greater.

superstressed: Recently purchased a s. purpurea from Mike and I am so impressed with the quality of the plant that arrived. My Purpurea is now one of the larger plants in my collection! Mike also included an beautiful Flava var. for free. I will absolutely buy again.
