I have a 5 inch pot with 2 rather large D. capensis, and several offspring (what a surprise.) I had let them get extremely scraggly, and really don't pay that much attention to them. Tonight I was doing some maintenence on some Nepenthes, and decided to cut back the dead growth on said D. capensis. Rather interesting is how there is almost 1.5-2 inches of just old 'stem' (for lack of a better word) that has accumulated under the growing tips of the plant. It is literally the ends of old leaves that I had cut off over time. I'm assuming this is normal for this plant, but I haven't run across any threads detailing this. When I eventually re-pot them in the near future, should I plant this stem portion underneath the new media, or leave it above as is? I will admit it looks kind of goofy. No pictures tonight, as they are probably not needed, and it's rather late. I ought to be heading to bed.
