    I have a few Nep's out side and they are both growing fine. But they will not make any pitchers. They grow new leaves and everything but no pitchers. What could cause this? Do I need to worry about it?

    heres the situations that come to mind

    #1 to lil light
    #2 to lil humidity
    #3 fertilizer present in the soil

    how long you have had the neps, how much light they get and where you live could probably narrow down the possibilities

    I live in Texas so that might mean humidity is to low here? Right now the humidity is 61% outside and at night i goes up into the 80's. It gets full sun all day long and seems to like it. The soil is LFS and Peat and I have had them for a few months now.

    I'm in the same boat you are. I got a N. Ventricosa from C3P0 about a month+ ago. It's growing nice green leaves, vining, but no new pitchers. I live in Ohio so the humidity is not the problem. It's potted in 50/50 ripped up LFS/Perlite, so the soil is drainy. I keep the plant moist, and have it in an open tray that has perlite on the bottom so the plant isn't sitting in water. It sits under a tree, gets great morning sun, and filtered/indirect sunlight for the rest of the day.

    From when I have gotten new neps, it seems to take 2 to 3 months to settle into new conditions.

    When Nepenthes are grown outside, they can take a considerable amount of time to adjust to outdoor conditions, anywhere from 3 months to 18 months. Some species and hybrids just never adjust. The most common thing you'll find is that pitchering will be inconsistent - during ideal conditions pitchers will be produced, but if it is too dry, then none will be produced.
