    xvart, do you remove any of the dead parts? Or you just leave them on?

    I am wondering because I would meticulously remove every bit of brown.

    Yeah, I would cut off the dead pitcher before it molds.

    Hi Cindy - Typically I would. On my typical that died back I went at it like a bandit; but, didn't go too deep because at the time, since the clump was so large and compact I was afraid I would accidentally cut some of the live growth. As for the 'Hummer's Giant,' I haven't yet, because the growth was still live for a while and I just haven't gotten around too it, yet. It's on my "to-do" list next time I get out the trimmers for my Nepenthes pitchers. I don't like the unsightly growth at all! Another problem is my scissors are too big for something so small, lol.

    Wow! That's weird! But cool!

    Are the new shoots emerging from a close-to-surface root??
