Subject: S.purpureae Water

Hello All,
      I'm sorry if this question has been covered before. I have
searched through the achives for an answer with no success. I have
a few recently acquired S.purpureae that appear to be doing quite well.
Both have produced new growth and have begun to develope some red
coloration. My question is, should the pitchers occasionaly be flushed
with clean water? Due to there structure it would seem that this would
happen when growing outside with rain. I was also wondering how full
the pitchers should be? When filling the trays I use DI water with all
of my plants. This is my first experience with any Sarracenia, but I
deffinately look to acquring more in the future.
