    Hi Nep G.
    purps like a high water table, the best you can do is plunge the plant into a deep bowl of rainwater say level to the top of the pot in the shade for a few hours and then bring it into the light again. I grow my largest plants all the time with this technique..
    Best Regards

    OK Mike! I did that. I also meant it to be S. Purpurea subsp. Purpurea F. Herterophylla. Soory bout that. I like Heterophylla and this palnt is my only one, I think it should be OK. Should i give it any Superthrive? And the dosage if you would use it Mike?

    Hi Nep G.
    I would treat your heterophylla just the same as your other purpurea ssp. purpurea. I have never tried superthrive, I just let the plants do their thing by catching their own insects.. Try growing the purps by placing the pots into a plastic washing up bowl, they love it with me from the high water table they get [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Well, its outdoors (no greenhouse). It gets about 5 hours of light, its watered from top (now it is cuz it was repotted and i dont have a water dish yet.). The average temps now in Sf are around 80ish+ F. Im not sure about humdidty. all the forming leaves are burned at the top, but new ones are coming out. -Zach

    It shows humidity too! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    I thought it's been around the lower 70's during the day and 50's at night in SF. The news keeps saying how cool it is over there on the coast, but more inland where I live it reached 100F on Wednesday and it's been 90's regularly this week. Today (Saturday) it was finally 80's. I've been seeing a lot of people taking walks with umbrella's to protect from sun this week.

    Hi Nep G,
    Cut the wilted pitchers off and see if the plant will send up new growth, that will probably be the only chance to save your plant and keep it out of direct sun, but good light in a more humid place to see if it recovers...

    You guys are certainly getting some sun there, here we are having endless rain!
