    I'd think it's a bit too soon to see any impact on leaf size. Watch to see what the pitchers do. Any impact should play out 2 to six weeks after treatment. Nepenthes are very slow growers, at least under my conditions.

    Usually I'd agree with you, but somethings up for sure- three or four different species of neps all revealing their next leaves right after their first root treatment, and each leaf is half the size of the one before. Maybe it's the increasing light and heat at this time of the year, they're on a windowsill grow shelf; the leaves just revealed might've been developing smaller due to increased light and heat, then were exposed early in one flush of growth after fertilization..? My only theory

    D'Amato and others do say to fertilize less in winter, but since this is your first time I don't think that's the issue. Are these highlanders and intermediates? If so, then I'd agree - light and temp are probably your culprit.
