    A Few questions.....


    1. How big is it?

    2.What kind of light, temps and humidity is it in?

    3. What form of truncata is it, Pasian HL or LL?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    4. Could you post a photo of the plant?

    5. What do you mean, " ihave been feeding it crickets but it was not doing well with that"? Has the plant dropped its pitchers, rotted, or slowed down in growth rate?

    6. Why the smiley spamming?
