About two months ago I bought a pitcher plant from Lowes. It was in the regular dome type thing and was green. I repotted it into a bigger pot and with moss. The moss had some minerals in it and I was worried that it might die but luckily it did not. One of the pitchers died, but there is one that has turned a beautiful red! I am so glad. In the past few weeks, leaves have been literally popping up overnight. I will go to bed, and the next morning there is suddenly another leaf! Also, a green thing has started growing and I need your help. Here are some pictures of my plant, which I am proud of. I live on the NC Coast, where Venus Flytraps are everywhere, so I am hoping that it will be fine. I water it with the water from the water hose...I heard that your not suppose to do that, but I have been and it has been going for two months!
Here is just a general picture of it. I was wondering if the extra leaves would turn into additional pitchers, or are they just leaves?
Here is a side view of it. As you can see, there is a hole in the pitcher that I believe came from an insect a few weeks ago. Is there any damage that has been done...could it die from this?
Here is another view of it. The pitcher is full of water, is that ok? Also, I placed a ladybug in there and it died...how do I know if it gets digested? I do not believe it has done anything yet to any bugs, and I don't know that it will if anything gets in it.
And here is a picture of the green things. They looks like blades of grass..The pot is on a deck, so I'm not sure how grass started growing in it if it is grass...Should I remove the green stuff, what is it? Also, any tips on how to keep it alive, what should I do in the winter? Could it possibly get to hot for the pitcherplant? It gets around 100F here. I'm so proud of it since it turned red...It was green and I saw it at Lowes and was like oh the poor thing and bought it.
