    I've done two doses of egg water since my previous post (over a month ago). I haven't noticed any difference so far.

    I have a N. gymnamphora and N. Ventricosa. I have them in a terrarium lighted with gro light GE 33 watts almost 12 hours a day. I spinkled them with water each day from above. They are not growing any pictures now . What are the best methods to get them going through the winter and get the pitchers going? THe leaves are healthy and there are tendrils growing but no pictcher. Another thread to get humidifier. Or do I need more light too.
    any help appreciated.

    You may have to wait longer. There are usually small brown points that look like hooks at the end of each tendril. That hook may or may not develop into a pitcher. It starts out small, but as time progresses, that hook curvers upward when it will begin to swell and inflate, and then eventually becoming a visible pitcher. I'd say that light is more of a factor than humidity (unless you're growing lowlanders). Make sure they get lots of bright, but indirect light! As long as they're getting water, but not sitting in it, they should do fine. I heard that spraying their leaves in the morning increases surrounding humidity, but you may want to ask the experts on here before you do so.

    Plants that are fertilized produce bigger pitchers and get huge faster. *
