    Hi All
    I have a small bog with A few pitcher plants in it, Due to some personal things at home I didn't cut away the Pitchers of the plants. Some stayed green under the straw and snow. As it is starting to get a bit warmer and raining now, will the old leaves hinder the new ones?

    No. And their photosynthesis will help the plant grow even stronger.

    I agree with herenorthere but I would remove any brown dead parts so they dont mould.

    Green is good! It's feeding the plant. Don't "prune" anything green!
