I bought a N. coccinea about 3 years ago..it had a few pithers when I bought it, but NONE since! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] *not one single pitcher in 3 years! but in that time, the thing has grown like a weed, it is now 3 feet tall and has many growing points..I have even cut it back several times in the last 3 years.
well I naturally assumed all this time that is was not pitchering due to lack of humidity..I had it growing in my bathroom, (best chance for humidity in the house) next to a west window, I thought it was getting enough light, because it was growing just fine, but no pitchers at all..so the problem must be low humidity right?
Wrong! I brought the plant into work 2 months ago..it is now in a VERY bright south window on the 8th floor, nothing blocking the light at all..well guess what! NOW there are lots of BIG pitchers! every new leaf is now pitchering!
which means the problem was the light and NOT the humidity! the humidity in my office building is "normal"..not high at all, the plant is given no extra humidity at all, no terrarium, no misting, nothing,,this variety can be grown as a normal houseplant! no special conditions needed at all..
So if anyone is having problems with a nep not pitchering, try more light! My plant needed the light, not the humidity..
