    Have you transplanted it recently? Are you absolutely positive nothing in the mix contains fertilizer?

    Ah - most likely it is due to the recent transplant. I've noticed most of my neps go through a 'shock' period after transplant where pitchers suffer or are aborted.

    Is it kept in the same conditions that it was in before the transplant? If so, this will induce less stress upon the plant making for a quicker recovery.

    I'm getting a bit worried with everyone saying 99% humidity all the time is bad..., I'll try reducing the humidity to about 80% during the day, is that still too much? I have a new pitcher thats about 3 inches in height and has been developing for about a month... is this normal? I'm very paranoid.

    yeah, @ 100% humidity the plants can't 'breath'. they need to let out moisture to pull up more from there roots. This is how I understand it but I may be wrong. Any of you experts out there care to chime in?

    Actually, I'd like to know this also. I've never fully understood how humidity affects plants, only that it does. I always assumed (probably wrongly) that it's important only to keep the plant from losing moisture faster than it can replace it. So what's the real story?

    high humidity with no air circulation is bad

    high humidity with good air circulation likely is no big deal

    small terrariums do not have good air circulation unless they do not have a top.....
