A picture would be quite helpful.

Well, sort of. You need to start by acclimating your sarrs to your environment.
That means slowly giving them more sun and heat/temperature (the safe and sane way).
That also means that you can leave them in full sun and let them acclimate themselves (the riskier but quicker way that I usually take).
Remember: California sunlight is HOT and pitchers will burn upon initial contact.
This is normal and your sarrs will be fine after a couple of weeks.
During these first few weeks, make sure that your sarrs stay hydrated and moist.

How deep is the pot and what species are they? 2 inches in a pot that is 10 inches tall is fine for a flava or purp but too much for a leuco.

No, it's very difficult to tell without pitchers (impossible), but once it does produce pitchers, we'll still have to guess.
For all we know, you might've bought yourself a complex hybrid.
Unless it's a pure species or a simple hybrid/cultivar, the chances of indentification is low.
That's why I prefer to buy labeled sarrs over the cheaper unidentified sarrs.

A lesson I learned the hard way is you’re better off not keeping them in as high of a water level as you think. They are weak from the division, and need to heal from the experience. I drop the water levels in my 1020 trays for plants that are divided.
Also, please isolate them from your other plants until you have had them for a month or so. I do that to guarantee that my new plants are free of pests, including pathogens…
