    Unhappy

    My S.pupurea is starting to come out of dormancy, and I wonder if I should trim off last seasons pitchers, even though they arn't dead. Will making room for this years growth invigorate the plant?

    Here's a pic:

    Agreed, and then you send a piece to me and a piece to Nepenthes_ak and a piece...

    Seriously though, I wouldn't cut them off--they look nice. I don't know that it would stimulate new growth. I would just trim off old pitchers as they get ratty looking.

    I never cut live parts off a Sarr, other than flower stalks.

    a good trim would add room for this years pitchers and the old ones will die anywho, just try not to cut off any pitcher fetuses or anything, and that doesn't look like a purpurea to me, maybe a catesbaie?

    EDIT: WHOOPS MAYBE I'M A LITTLE CONFUSED HERE

    I agree. It doesn't look like it's 100% purpurea to me either, the pitchers seem too slender. It probably has a tall species somewhere in it's ancestry.
