    They usually send them up during summer, in my experience. Weaker pitchers in the spring, and stout pitchers in the fall.

    And they'll grow nothing but phyllodia if unhappy. I can believe a move would be enough to cause it. But those'll do lots of photosynthesizing and the plant should be ready for its awesome fall pitchers.

    Many plants will bloom in response to stress - it is a last-ditch effort to reproduce by an organism that thinks it may die.

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -
