    I only water it with battery water after the water in tray completely goes off. That corresponds i think 2 full days. Can watering make a damage like that?

    S. purpurea likes a lot of water, I have seen it grown very well as a floating plant. Please remember it is a bog plant and stand it in water continuously.

    I really can't understand why is this happening. It is always in a water tray, and it is also under in led light right now. Because firstly it was outside but the temperature is pretty high right now. I moved it to inside under grow lights. And the brown tips are still going. Probably it will die somehow, i really don't get it. Any tips ?

    This is basically a random guess, but it seems to me it might be responding to lower humidity indoors than it had before.

    The plant should be sitting in water with water in the pitchers.

    Hey Gang,

    Keep in mind where this plant grows in the wild. It's a bog plant, from the Eastern US (this variety looks to be venosa, so probably mid Atlantic states). Thus, they get very hot days, and usually the nights are quite warm too during the growing season.

    It's normal for older leaves to slowly brown and eventually die. Leaves don't last an entire season usually. As long as center is healthy, you should shortly (if not already) see new growth coming.

    Finally, these plants are subject to LOTS of sun in the wild, and need at least a half a day, more is better. You can use lights, but real sunlight is best.

    Humidity is really not an issue. Like any plant, if you suddenly change the environment from humid to dry, it will suffer, but they are otherwise very tolerant of varying humidity levels.

    I find we fuss over our plants way more than we need to. Give it the environment it likes, then leave it alone.

    Very interesting.
    Here in the UK I find that S. purpurea pitchers last well into a second season. That's in unheated greenhouses.
