So I guess what I want to ask is... Is feeding pitchers going to provide more energy for plant growth than cutting the pitchers so the plant doesn't have to focus on putting out pitchers?
There's a few neps that I don't enjoy as much as I could and I think I would really enjoy the larger adult pitchers. For example, N. singalana. If I feed the pitchers a big meal, will it help them more than if I just cut the pitchers off? You know, because they're growing in nutrient poor soil and aren't getting any minerals other than bi-weekly fertilizing... So it would make sense that they would need the pitchers for extra nutrients to grow faster. However, if they didn't need the pitchers, why would they have them? We're growing them in nutrient poor soil like they live in in the wild. It makes sense both ways to me.
Thanks in advance!
