    Thanks again for all the input guys, it is much appreciated. Hey phission, do you get a good amount of pitchers with 50% humidity?

    70% was good. 80% will be better.
    High humidity can reduce nepenthes recover time.
    but you must to notice airiness.
    wish your rafflesiana can recover fast and fast.

    I get good amounts but they aren't as large as they would be in higher humidity. Like duckking said, higher humidity will also help them adapt to adverse conditions/recover from damage

    That is great!

    Now just give it some extra time and it will start growing new pitchers...

    I get a similar experience with my bellii, I have to move the plant to a diferent place on the house and it get really bad, it lose all the leaves, and the grow tip die... I was really sad because this is my first nepenthes...

    Well the fact is I dont give up on my plant, and now is doing great, it get a basal and is growing fast, each small leave have a micro pitcher, I hope for the begining of the next year my bellii be big enought to give me the satisfaction to see some nice size pitchers.

    Hi Nepenthes,

    Well, your plant has to contend with shipping shock, new environment AND physical damage. No problem!

    However, patience will be the name of the game. It will probably start to look a little worse before it gets better - just keep it watered, and wait.

    I had one nep that took over a year after it had a nasty shipping experience - then it finally took off and went gangbusters.
