    Came home to this...

    i was out of town and this is what i see my first day back...not sure whats going on here.

    Theres a couple good look ones like this one


    but then a couple that look like this


    these next two are the same pitcher just different angle








    N.ventricosa, was left with my mom she knows well enough how to water it and how often, lights are on a timer its 2 cfl 26 watt bulbs and 1 t8. im just confused...the leaves are doing fine...just the pitchers are baffling me. Also...

    ---------- Post added at 10:43 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:40 PM ----------

    ...Should i seperate the ventricosa (btw guys i just got this plant 2 weeks ago).

    it looks ridiculously thick compared to others plants.





    thank you to anyone that even takes the time to look at this.

    Or you mean ventricosas ! Wow, what a clump. Be careful though, separating it could shock it, Nep roots are rather sensitive to that.

    Maybe the pitchers were just old? Has the plant been moved lately or anything about the enviroment changed?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    well i dont want to stump the growth of the plant(s) by letting them sit in such a small pot, what would you do?

    and exo yes they got shipped approximately 2 weeks ago from oregon so im sure that from there to south florida is a bit of an enviorment change, would that cause the pitchers to go downhill like so? but for most of the pitchers (except one i believe) its just the top half that seems to be dying out. ive read that the pitchers die after a certain amount of time so im hoping thats the case, this is my first nep so i hope im just over analyzing things.

    I've noticed Neps post-shipping without fluid in their pitchers shrivel and die, and adding water won't stop it, oddly enough. Smaller pitchers hold in the fluid better because usually the lid is closer to the peristome.

    In addition, I don't think many Nepenthes can be stunted with small pots (exceptions include rajah, bicalcarata, northiana), so I wouldn't repot them just yet.

    You don't need to add water to filled pitchers! If you please, read my last comment -maybe- slower?
