So I have 2 pitcher plants in a single pot. N.Alata Sprouted around July(Totally accidental, thought this was just a new stem since my ventrata is in a bending position ever since I got it last May). As you can see, my N. Alata(I assume it is alata since it has hairs on the pitcher) has already traps and growing just fine.
On the other hand, My N.Ventrata hasn't been pitchering since then. It just continues to grow leaves with red tendrils(I trimmed the last picther it had since it was rotting, it was already grown when I got it) but the pitcher tips just dry off after a week or so
Temp here in the philippines is 27C-32C. It rains about 3-5 times a week(rainy season). I am not sure but as you can see on the pics it is placed on a rusty metal roof(heat/temp issues?). But as I recall I had a leaf that was just in the rim of the pot and it still dried off and another that didnt touch the roof and it still dried.
