    It just depends what they eat, and how much.

    My Judith hindle has been catching so many flys... it is starting to smell bad just getting near to poke around. It is weird though... only a few turned black where the bug build up occurs.. others are fine. On my copper top... most of the pitchers where getting indigestion.. so I put a long blade of grass in the newest pitcher so that it can have a time to harden up a bit .. and not just fill with flys.

    I think it might also depend on the weather, my flavas and a judith hindle are all in a little minibog that I set up on the front porch steps. This is the first year that any of them experienced indigestion. The weather has been really wet, and hot unlike the last few summers that I've had them. I don't know how true this is, it's just a spuculation.

    My solution: When I start to see brown spots due to undigested bugs, it means it's time to lend a helping hand and do some... Chewing. :-X I squirt in just a little bit of r/o water (or a lot if there's a bunch of flies, just enough to cover most of the carcasses) and give a little sqeeze around the thinner parts. It's sort of disgusting when you hear the exoskeleton crunch, and the water turns sort of murkey... But hey, it keeps the plants healthy.

    Nevermore, you've got the right idea. If you have a plant that will produce pitchers to hold a lof of bugs, you should block the opening for a while to let the pitchers "fill out" a bit more. This way they'll be able to hold more and last longer.

    You may just get a patch of brown at the bottom, but only in rare cases does it spread upwards. I would just leave them.
