    I had a N.pilosa x veitchii that wouldn't pitcher, but when I finally got a garden sprayer. The pitchers started to swell, and some pitchers won't swell unless they are resting on lfs.

    Has anyone tried fertilizing it and grow it warmer yet?

    I think rainforestguys suggestion of growing it warmer would help. Also what is the humidity when you dont spray it? try to repot it into a much larger pot, then the humidity would rise even more around it.
    Need all the experience I can get...
