    My ceph[Edit: I'm assuming you mean Cephalotus follicularis, species names have two parts, first part=genus, always capitalized, second part=specific epithet, always lower case; together they comprise the species name] devours lots of flies with no problems to the pitchers. What conditions are you keeping yours in?

    I keep it inside my terrarium that is in my basement. My basement is heated, but it gets a little cooler at times. The terrarium is about 20 inches tall, and I keep some cardboard on top to raise the humidity. I also mist it every night. My humidity gauge says 60 percent humidity, but it it isn't very accurate. It's in a 3 inch pot. Sadly I only have one pitcher left, and I'm afraid of repotting it.

    If you only have one pitcher left, I wouldn't even waste the time or effort of getting the pellet food. I would just let it grow new pitchers and give it some time. Many times they catch small insects that live in the soil, that you may not even be able to see. I would try feeding it when it is a little more stable.
    Let us know how it goes,

    Where does the light come from? Is it in standing water?

    [Edited topic title, was: Cepalotus. Corrected to read, Cephalotus follicularis]

    If you have trouble with the leaves dying after being fed. My suggestion would be to stop feeding them.
