    Phyllodias

    I had my Sarracenias under low light so they started to produce phyllodias but now I have them under good light again

    Should I cut the Phyllodias?

    Thanks

    nope. keep them till they turn brown. they help with photosynthesis. but its personal choice. i dont harm in cutting them off. makes the plant look cleaner

    another reason is that oreophila was my first sarracenia, so i thought.... hmm when is that thing going to grow bigger and expand out to be a pitcher.... turns out it was a phyllodia. but now my oreophila have 3 pitcher, still too small. yesterday i got a spider in there, it just climbed back up and swung away.
