    Anyway the food catching is not that important as of now. if the plant is not growing properly it shouldn't be related to food. Food is just to make it grow better.

    It is really hard to judge from a distance what is wrong. Maybe the soil is too wet and doesn't drain well enough? I have it in very rough coco fiber with some lava rocks. Maybe your plant is still in shock, how long do you have it already?

    I've had it for about a month now. It could be the soil, it's in a peaty substrate. I didn't repot because I was so enamoured with the large pitchers I didn't want to risk it.

    I think maybe it's just a slow grower?

    Hello Colin,

    My N x gentle is under partial shade, hanging from my porch. It's currently pitchering quite heavily. I can't say that these will grow to be large pitchers since they are all still closed. But there's one abt the length of my little finger now and it's covered with red specks.

    I repotted it in a larger pot with sand/peat/vermiculite/perlite. It didn't look like it grew for abt 2 weeks then last week or thereabouts, it started pitchering wildly. (small undeveloped pitchers, that is)

    Maybe u cld try repotting it?

    A month is not really much. It is still adjusting to the new environment and you should just leave it alone for a while (say two months) and observe. Compared to others Gentle is a slow grower (at least in the tropical lowlands! ) especially the pitchers.
    That pitchers are turning brown after moving the plant (store to you) is quite normal. Wait if the next pitchers are increasing in size. Maybe the first ones just reacted on the 'disturbance'.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. eBeyonder, I moved it to a bigger pot, but that's about it.

    leucophylla, thanks for all your help. I've decided to give all my plants more sun, since they could probably use it.

    As for the Gentle, I think I'll leave it alone for a while [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Oh my! My N. x Gentle started off that size, but recently all the pitchers have been quite small. I was hoping that over time it would adapt and produce larger pitchers.

    Neil: wow that amazing! how did you get that? are those big spotlights in the background?where did you get them? i might need 1
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"
