The pitchers have been filling up with 'goodies', but it looks like they ate too much too fast.

Oh yeah! My Sarrs are "piggies" too. Sometimes the pitchers rot in the middle and topple over! Very nice plants, but the way! What are they if you don't mind.

I think that's exactly what will happen to these - the tubes got stuffed! At least up to the top of that 'burnt' zone.

The top (first) pic is S. 'Hank' - it's a Sarracenia NW hybrid. Still want to make it down to their place someday, but haven't yet, even tho' it's only a state away. (Same with FTC ... at least until the relocation is complete).

The second is a hybrid from Courting Frogs - S. (alata red x oreophila) x ‘Ares’. Just based on the vigor of this plant last year, I acquired a few other 'Ares' crosses this spring.

Admittedly, both look a little nicer without the big burnt patch in the middle. ;)
