    I was just about to put up that site too! Hehehe! Mindmaze, I would personally (if it is your only Merrilliana pitcher) uncover it slightly. Just so that you have an active pitcher to give the plant some nutrients then you can let your other pitchers do what they want to after that. Just a suggesstion.

My old Merrilliana that was super-shocked came back through! I now have 2 Merrilliana's! Cool eh?
