    I don't see why not. It is the saucer that came with the pot. I have lots of pots that have all the "snap on" saucers that came with them.

    Hi,

    Nepenthes pitchers are normally not half full with fluid, 1/8 to 1/4 is more normal for bigger ones. Only some special species and most of the baby sized pitchers are filled to half or even more.

    When an established plant is not able to stabilize the fluid level in its pitcher by its own, something is definitely wrong with the growing conditions or the plant itself. So adding to Tony's comments you may have a look at these points:
    - What soil is used and were they repotted recently?
    - How long do the plants grow under the conditions they are in by now - are they new or already established?
    - Which water is used for watering?
    - How high do temperatures get during the day (maybe in full sun)?

    i water em once every other day, and its damp

    that only happeend once, they are in shade,

    they look really healthy its just the pitcher fluid i was wondering why they dotn have any, its jus a little tiny bit like joachim said

    so over all i think they are fine i just would think theyd have more fluid
