    Unhappy

    My nep. rafflesiana has had a Can o' Crickets cricket in it for about 30 minutes, and still nothing is happening... I also tickled a bunch of the hairs inside it... it has 70% humidity, its 79*F, and it's in a terrarium. thanks!

    umm I am rather confused about your post.

    Hairs inside a N. rafflesiana?? Nepenthes don't have hairs inside their pitchers.

    If you just repotted your plant and the pitchers are dry.. you can add a little rainwater or distilled water so there is about an inch of water in the bottom of the pitcher.
    Other than that I have NO clue what in the world your talking about with dry not normal green pitchers that are dead

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    well, not really the hairs, just the insides. I thought it would emit enzymes... Oh, it's at perfect moisture... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] So, should I add water to the inside of the pitcher?

    Just add a little water to any of the green pitchers that are dry. The next pitchers the plant produces while in your terrarium should be fully functioning on their own.

    Not that I want to speak for him or anything, but Tony, I'm not sure his pitchers are big enough to FIT one inch of water in the bottom...

    No offense either but you expect something to happen in 30 minutes?
