    Don't want to freak you out, but I see stuff like that when plants get certain diseases. I wouldn't be too worried, I mean, some people give many of those to plants on purpose because they like how it affects the coloration of flowers and stuff, that is the only thing I can think of that would cause that after a pitcher was developed.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Thx for the reply psychosarah.
    I will see in the next few days..

    Av: a pitcher who last only 4 months? All my others helis keep their pitchers for at least 1 year. I wondering because this pitcher is dying from the bottom, with a rust like color. Maybe this specie is different..

    It gets patchy like that, and only at the bottom? Nepenthes and sarracenia, and most other CPs I have seen, have discoloration at the uppermost part of the pitcher before it dies, not at the base first.

    Yes, i feed all my helis twice a month since years..

    I think about changing the soil mix. I got many lil plantlets at the base of the plant. I need backup plants!

    IMHO, since it was the first pitcher (in your care, so just getting out of recovery) it had the least ability to utilize the food and damage has resulted
    Meh, I wouldn't be concerned unless I saw further evidence of progression....

    but that's just my opinion at this point :-)
