Sarracenia Rhizome Depth

When planting Sarracenias at what sort of depth should the rhizomes be buried ? I have several plants that were bought in pots and in some the rhizome is completely buried whereas in others the the rhizome is buried to about half its depth and is showing above the surface of the compost. In either situation the plants are growing well however, I have bought some bare rooted plants and so was wondering if there is a recommended depth at which the rhizome should be planted.

I find similar growing behavior among Sarracenias and Irises, and that the rhizome tend to grow half way above the ground or soil level. I planted some of my Sarracenias a little below soil level, and in time the rhizome grows right above(half way buried)the soil level.....
