    When was the last time you changed your potting medium? Did it experience any shift in climactic conditions? Sometime Neps just put out a funny leaf, but if the leaves are getting smaller and smaller, I usually suspect the potting medium is too wet or compact. Smaller pitchers could be the result of a climbing stem shifting into upper pitcher mode.
