I woke up this morning and suddenly saw the new adult pitcher opening.
However, a lot of things crossed my mind:
- An old pitcher which was there since I got the plant...that was kinda under a LEAF is still nice and fresh
- 2 new pitchers that formed later had dried up
Based on that i figured...of course...the lids are open....humid air is escaping.
So before heading to class...i immediately made a sacrifice of my 4 L bottle to give my ceph a dome.
Check this out
Basically a 4L bottle cut at the top. I cut off the mouth peice of the bottle.
Instead of misting the plant...I can mist the plastic so that the plant remains dry without compromising the humidity.
Should I be expecting to loose any pitchers?
Do u think this is wise? I noticed that only the open new pitchers last max a month or so. The old one under the leaf which has a nice micro environment for itself is still here after like 3 months.
hmm....... What do I do?? What do I do?? This is the first real pitcher on my plant. I do not want it to go into stress now. I am just doing this as I noticed that low humidity makes the plant loose its pitchers faster than with higher humidity. The temp I just noted is like 85F inside the dome as it is pretty close to the light. However, the humidity is easily around 70% + .
