    My ventricosa lived through practically everything. It was sunburned, dehydrated, overheated, almost frozen, and it had its growing tip snapped off in shipping. It recovered very well and was starting to pitcher again before finally dying of a mite infestation. For some reason, I have the worst luck with some of the supposedly easy species, while the "harder" species are sitting there happily pitchering away. My advice is to wait and let it settle in. I've had neps sit for about a year before starting to pitcher.

    My N. burbidgeae has been sitting for about 5 months now, and i'm starting to see a little pitcher growth, not much.

    My N. maxima has been sitting for 3 months, and i've got about the same growth.

    This is from the time i bought them mind you.

    So i guess it also depends on the plant.

    The same thing happened with my two ventratas. One pitchered the next month, the other took 4 months to pitcher.

    Well, the temperatures in my terrarium are about 50-60 during the day. That could be why it hasn't been pitchering. Also, when I got it, it only had about 1 leaf, and since it has grown about 4. It's about to unfurl a new leaf real soon. Do you think that it just needs more leaves before it starts to make pitchers?

    That that problem! Those should be the night time temps....Try to get the day temps at least into the 70's. That should encourage some growth.
