Those pitchers are a very unnatural green color, even if they are new. They also aren't supposed to be elongated like in the second photo, especially if they're the S. purpurea subsp. venosa that I think they are. I don't suppose they're getting enough light, are they?

I just got them today,Im planning to do the normal routine for it,1 hour of daylight then on and on.They had all the Carnivorus plants at my nursery under a light,it looked bright.Though I never asked what type it was.The pitcher plants there seem to be the healthiest plant in that area.This may sound dumb but is the reason their green because they are a hybrid of some sort?
EDIT:Didnt see the last part,the label on the front says "SARRACCENIA PUPERA" And I did some reaserch on the looks real quick and it looked like it was a regular ol' Pupera

How much light do you plan to ultimately give them? Those pitchers certainly don't indicate a healthy amount of light, which is no fault of yours, and I don't know any single light that will keep Sarracenia happy indoors. Your plants are not hybrids, if they were then the indicative traits would appear in all pitchers. I believe they are S. purpurea subsp. venosa, although I may be incorrect; if so, then they are S. rosea. I can say that they're not the northern subspecies.

When Im done introducing them to their new home,and they get fully settled Im going for about 3-4 hours in direct sunlight then moving them to my windowsill for the rest of the day,the windowsill is about 6 feet long and the sun shines directly on it.

You could do with a longer period if at all possible, can you get them outside in full sun?

Cheers

The extra light will certainly do them some good. Here is mine to maybe help compare to. Hope it helps!Image
