    Well I like to feed my plants, so I'll just probably feed them at will. One thing I've heard mixed messages on is whether or not to put water in the pitchers themselves, some places say to put water in dry pitchers and others say its bad- what to do?

    There shouldn't be any need to add water to the pitchers, and it can dilute the digestive juices. One thing I have discovered is that raising the liquid level above the digestion zone can burn the pitcher walls if there are enough nutrients present and that can make it tricky to use liquid fertilizer.

    One thing I read says the movement of bugs inspires pitchers to produce more digestive fluid, is that true in your experience? Or does a dry pitcher just tend to refill itself eventually?

    Dry pitchers refill themselves. They will also withstand being dry until they fill themselves. If they start to die off, it is probably just due to the shipping stress and/or change in location.

    Good to know- thanks for all your help. Seriously, this place has helped me so much with getting started in this adventure. Not to mention the motivation to get my garden in gear seeing what everyone else is growing.

    I found a bonus too, little bumpy freckles on the underside of the lids on the more mature pitchers-
