    I disturbed the roots as little as possible, but got quite a lot of them free from the peat. It's not dead yet, so that's a plus.

    It's dropped all but one of its pitchers. I think it's forming new ones, but I'm not too terribly sure.

    My D. adelae is also having some trouble. The newest leaves are turning black before they uncurl. There is a spider in the terrarium, that's the only change that's been made in there.

    I moved into my new apartment a few weeks ago. I think the plant is liking the conditions. It's started another basal and is unfolding new leaves. No signs of pitchers yet. I do have it in a humidity tray now.

    I agree as well. Humidity and lighting along with any root disturbance are the main causes for change in pitcher size. I never had pitcher size go down with feeding. It only progressively gets bigger. Change in pitcher size also happens due to temperature stress. I have a macrophylla and villosa that was making progressively bigger pitchers and then suddenly...made pitchers 1/4 their size in peak summer/early autumn. I am sure it will get better as winter gets going.
