    That looks really nice! Surprisingly, mine never catches wasps. It's always smaller insects like ants or sphagnum gnats instead.

    Thanks, guys! I think maybe it catches so many wasps is because there is a foot ball sized nest about 20 feet away in a tree.

    I think my plant has stopped growing for the season, since the newer leaves haven't done anything. Is it too early, or is that normal? When should I expect to see a flower bud forming while it's in dormancy?

    I've noticed that since the sun tends to hit only some parts of the pitchers, those parts get colored up much quicker than the parts that don't get hit by the sun, and sometimes those parts don't color up much at all. Is that ok?

    Think of it like getting a tan on one side of you'r body. You'll still be healthy, just ugly

    Lol, ok. That's good. Just kinda maybe one more question. What do I do with the live sphagnum in my pot when I put my purp in the attic or garage for dormancy? Will it be ok if I just leave it in the pot?
