    Thanks for the info, I've had a look around the net and it looks like that's exactly what it is. I'm going to leave it alone for now and maybe separate it once the plant has settled into it's new vivarium.

    Ok thanks for letting me know. So is it enough to just provide high humidity and wait for the fluid to fill up the pitchers again or do you add a bit of water to them to encourage that process?

    I sometimes add a little bit of water to help but usually if humidity is provide you will see in the new pitchers before they open they will have liquid in them already
