Can anyone please help me save this new Sarracenia Purpurea plant? This was shipped bare root from Little Carnivores and was potted in a bog garden with Venus Flytraps. It looked happy the first day and now it’s sad. What do I do to save it. I placed it under the right conditions.

That looks pretty extreme for just one day. What kind of soil did you pot them in? Was the soil wet when you planted them or was it dry and you added water to the top? It looks like the plant has completely dried out like you left it in the sun with no soil.

Sarracenia when growing and purps in particular like it wet, a lot wetter than VFTs, it should stand in water. That said, that one looks desiccated, if there is a growth point that looks soild it may survive, but it looks like something drastic has happened, have you had any bad frosts or dry desiccating winds? It's unusual for all the leaves to dry out so completely in a day!
