    Hun? Dead pitchers are dead, the plant doesn't use energy on them anymore, thats why they are dead.

    this may be a little off topic, but has anyone here seen fluids inside a COMPLETELY dead pitcher and tendril? I always do... Is that normal? on most of my pitchers they suck up the fluids, but on some, they don't [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    I would guess it deals with the humidity at the point the pitcher dies. During the summer when the humidity is high some of the dead pitchers would still have some juice. During the winter my place it a littler drier and they tend to die with no fluid inside. That would be my guess. Hmmm, I wonder if you could use the fluid from a dead pitcher and put it into a live pitcher. I also wonder if a pitcher lives longer if it has fluid inside the pitcher than one that does not.

I read that off someones post...may have been nep g's but I forgot. Thanks anyways.
