    I'm still a n00b, but I don't think it's the temps. From what I heard, this species can sometimes be grown as an intermediate.

    well if its vining, you cant expect it to produce pitchers, gymnamphora very rarely produces uppers.
    but its like ampullaria in that it should produce a ton of basals for you at this point. ive got a smaller plant, but it grows just fine in highland conditions under my lights right now.
    the soil mix i use is either peat/perlite/orchid bark/lfs or lfs/peat/perlite/orchid bark/osmunda fiber/horticultural sand.
    Give it some good humidity and light and you should be golden.

    ive never seen horticultural sand at lowes, ive had to get my stuff online.
    what do you mean is that true in most nep culture? upper pitcher? no, gymnamphora is just a species that doesnt produce uppers often, not much unlike N. ampullaria.....if you would like to repot it, you may, though i dont see why you would.

    can you get us a photo of the plant?

    Do you grow it in your bathroom? If so, I think light is your problem. Try increasing the amount of light the plant gets.
