    You might find a increase of humidity around the tendrils beneficial for the sib's pitcher production. Try setting the tips on pads of sphagnum, or something similar...
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Yeah my conditions in general have seen a decrease in day time humidity as of late, used to be in the 60s-70s but now its in the 50s-60s. I think thats likely why its stopped making pitchers... unfortunately its sending tendrils down below its pot and through the shelves grate, so there isnt much I can do to put moss under it really.

    I think this pitcher might be far enough down that it wont suicide in the grating.. only time will tell.


    Also, spath x robs leaves are big.

    For whatever reason, my local lowes and such have begun to severely cut back
    on sphagnum moss, also the quantity is shrinking. Might have a shortage in the near future..

    Beautiful red leopard. It's always fun finding gorgeous pitchers that you didn't realize were there as you browse your collection, isn't it? Sort of like finding a $5 in your winter jacket when you pull it out of storage.

    May I ask what kind of light these plants receive? I've considered getting one of those inexpensive greenhouses and just setting it up someplace in the house with the best sun exposure. Also - do you have any artificial lighting on them?
