    I would increase the light levels. #1 reason a nepenthes won't pitcher when all other factors are reasonable.... lack of enough light
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    That is about what I am doing. I am in Florida and my Raff is in an east window, in an enclosure made of two of those big clear plastic storage containers (they are not absolutely clear, but enough light gets through) with about 3/16" air space between. It is about 90 deg F and 90% humidity during the day.

    It has pitchered on every leaf for the 6 years that I have had it. It was from a Florida nursery, so maybe it was used to the heat and humidity already. Maybe yours just needs a little more light as suggested and maybe a little longer to get adjusted.
