    Lack of pitchering in N. Sanguinea

    I got a N. Sanguinea a couple years ago that's been through a lot, including partial consumption by my cat, though it has since recovered. Anyways, after a rapid burst of growth and pitchering, it hasn't produced any new pitchers in a couple of months without a change in care.

    Anyone have any idea what the problem could be? Is it just a seasonal thing? It's in a southern facing windowsill and gets supplemental sunlight with a fluorescent grow light.

    Pic included is of upper new growth, pitchers are 4-5 inches long on lower leaves:

    Yes, it's a seasonal thing. Expect pitchering to resume in April, give or take a few weeks.

    Looks healthy. I would venture guess that the short days, cooler temps and dryer air during the winter are the only thing that prevents it from pitchering. I'm in agreement with Whimgrinder: It should pitcher in spring and summer for you.
