Subject: purple pigment??

I've heard in many emails and from many people that nepentheses need a lot
of sun sometimes derect so i decided to put my n. cocina (hybrid) into the
derect sun. i left it there for about a week and when i looked at it later
it seemed to have a different pigment to some of the leaves. This pigment
was a purplish color so i was very confused on what happened because usually
when the leaves die they turn brown. Is this a sign of to much water to
little water bad spot or what? please assist i am new at this stuff and am
trying to grow some nepenthese and this particular one is not producing
pitchers. what can i do? thanx
