    I was moving one of my Cephs around within my grow chamber and I accidently spilled some of the juices out of one of the newly opened pitchers. I don't think all of it came out, but a good portion of it did. Is this a bad thing? Will the pitcher die because of it? Can I somehow replenish the juices by feeding the pitcher a bug or maybe refilling it with distilled water?

    I have had pitchers dry up if a good portion of fluid is spilled from the pitcher. No ill effect will happen to the plant other then the pitcher drying up. I do not think replenishing the fluid will help, but could be worth a try.

    Dang, I was afraid of that. I guess it'll teach me to be much more careful when moving any of my Cephs around. I think I may try to put some water back into the pitcher though...

    Though, don't most people say not to put in water since it messes up the digestive fluid? You could put a teeny drop of milk in, and that would make the plant produce loads more digestive enzymes, and it would fill up the pitcher a bit more. But, I suppose that's not much different from water.

    I wouldn't risk putting milk in it, it may cause the trap to rot and harm the rest of your plant.
    Just leave it like that for a while, it won't kill your plant however, cephs may experience and survive fires in the wild so an empty pitcher shouldn't be much of a problem.
    add a drop of distilled water if you like but nothing else.

    I've also had pitchers dry up after the fluid was spilled out. I think this is also the reason why pitchers die back after being shipped. For some reason the addition of RO water doesn't help.
