    Kick up the humidity. Sometimes that will do it. Low humidity will sometimes cause Nepenthes to not pitcher.

    the pitchers it had when i received it were long and skinny and more red than green. they were kinda spotted or whatever you wanna call it. most of them were dead or dying so i couldn't give you a great description. so more light? do i just add another grow light or what? how do i increase humidity? it's in a hanging basket and i'm not sure what it's potted in b/c i've never changed media. i'm to scared i will kill it like i do everything else.

    If you grow it indoors w/out a terrarium, I suggest you buy/build one. Most ways of raising humidity w/out enclosures that are used for orchids are very difficult so the easiest way will be putting it in a tank of some sort. I too have a non-pitchering DeRoose hybrid and am currently working on a large tank to put it in.

    Describe the lighting situation please! You mention putting a grow light on it. I can seem some leaves that had gotten bleached and burned about halfway up the stems. Is this when you added the light?

    What kind and amount of light is it getting? Natural and artificial. The new growth still looks elongated and lacking in light. Humidity is sometimes an issue for nonpitchering plants but more often than not it is insufficient light.

    You might also consider taking a cutting off the top and rooting it. Then try growing the new plant where it will get unshaded sun through a Southern or Western window. You may have to adjust it first though. Put it on the sill though.. not hanging up at the top where it might get less sun.

    Or perhaps you can put it outside? What part of the country are you in and what's your weather like?

    Tony

    Edit: I looked at your profile Crystal. Not sure what the moisture is like in the Dallas/Fort Worth area but outside might be an option. What are the temperatures like? Is your indoor location airconditioned, which would dry the air as well?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
