    i think you should not cut it and, assuming your conditions are up to snuff, treat it as normal. the dormant nodes will be activated by the plant in time.

    Yes.
    I have had a nep appear to die, then sprout back 3 months later.
    However, I left them uncut.
    Hope I helped!

    The Nepenthes singalana is recovering but the burbidgeae (Picture 2) is still in limbo:

    N. burbidgeae is slow, so it'll take some time to start growing again.

    I'm a 40ish looking 60 and my dad made it to 93 so maybe I will see new foliage after all.
    Thanks!

    I agree with the others.

    Just leave it alone and wait and see.

    Also, take care on not over watering it, you don't want to induce rot.

    I learned about over watering on another plant. Thripes damaged the foliage to such a degree that it was budding new growth. I whacked the old foliage off leaving just a stump and with new foliage budding out killed it with too much water. This time I squeezed the excess water from the NZS and will keep it that way. I reduced watering across the board on all the neps and will maintain a slightly drier group. Like others I lift the pots to see from their weight if they need watering.
    Thanks for the advice!
