    Why is this happening? Help

    Came home from work and I see this the most horrible things ever!! idk if this is normal but I've never seen them like this before.. The only thing I did different was try a diluted maxsea fertilizer.. These are the only two looking bad. The rest of my plants are very happy!! Could it be the fertilizer? Not enough water? I'm kinda spooked 😱 !! Thank you all !

    That happens to me on very hot and dry days from insufficient watering. If you water them soon enough sometimes the pitchers will straighten out. Make sure the pots are in trays and there is enough water in them so it doesn't dry out during the day.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    ^ Same here. They like very wet conditions. With sufficient watering the moss(media) will grow and this is how I have monitored mine for a few years now. In the pic you will see some moss growing, this was about a month ago. I have mine in large pots and during the winter I keep them out of standing water unless it gets a little dry. Once I see some new growth and a few warm days in a row, they go into the kiddie pool!

    Hi KP
    Definitely too dry, in the first picture you can see the media has shrunk back from the pot wall, when they are actively growing as much as the first one they need very moist/wet conditions, such as standing in trays of rainwater to no more that a quarter of the depth of the pot.

    Fertiliser tends to burn the foliage and roots if overused, as a general rule only use very dilute fertiliser and only on seedlings or young plants once a month, mature plants don't need any assistance, nor do seedlings for that matter but it does boost them.

    Good luck
    Steve

    What Steve said. At this time of the year, your plants should be sitting in three inches of water at all times.

    Thank you all.. I normally always have them doing awesome but I've been super busy this past month. I kinda figured it was do to water, but it's always helpful to have other CP growers pass on knowledge and their experiences! Thank you..

    Happy growing
