    Hey guys,
    Someone said that it's a good idea to fill up the pitchers about half way with distilled water. I never have heard about this one. Is this alright?
    Anyone who can help, i'd be much obliged! Thanks!

    I usually fill my newly arrived plants with water about 1/3 the way up... But are you talking about neps or other pitcher plants?

    A recent topic, brought back from the abyss, has been discussing the virtures of filling pitchers with milk and / or egg whites. Check that out in General Discussions.

    Do they have any fluid in them right now? If they do just leave them alone. The fluid in there is special digestive enzymes and diluting them with water will make it harder for the plant to digest it's prey.

    Like the dew that sundews produce, some folks are thinking that it is water or that adding water through misting is helping them.
