    ARGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

    I just talked to the greenhouse where I bought it. The temps were at least kept in the 50s so the pitcherless plant may have just slowed down for the winter. He said that it has had pitchers on it before (there is no sign of them now although cuttings had been taken in the past) and they kept it "lightly moist, fertilized it" and I didn't hear what was said after that. I pried a bit and he said it is "Bud and Bloom" budding fertilizer mixed with water and added to the soil.

    Ok, so now what? The pot isn't open at the bottom (there is one of those plastic inserts at the bottom) so I can't just flush it. It is obviously growing just fine so should I just let it go or try repotting a 10+ point carnivorous shrub?

    i believe it is some unknown N. maxima hybrid.
