What are these pink spots on my Saracenia?

Hello all,

I'm a rookie Saracenia grower, and despite my best research, I have absolutely no idea what these pink spots are. Any clue?

Cheers,
Harry

I think it's the red gene trying to express itself in the predominantly green plants.  It'd be a good idea to cut all that dead stuff away before it causes a problem.  Looks like it might need a re pot as well.  You could then separate out the red and the green ones.

Enjoy!

Ah really? I could have sworn the green ones turn red as they mature. On a different forum I'm apart of, someone has suggested it might actually be spider mites.

I'll look into getting a pot / cut the dead ones this evening!
