    How much light are you giving this? The adult pitcher is very flared, which is a sign of insufficient light. Maybe that's why it has reverted?
    That is the pitcher that was there when it was almost dead. :P This was the pitcher it made after repotting:



    The immature pitchers are getting larger though, so I think it will start on the mature pitchers soon.

    But anyway, it's growing under two t8 tubes, 32 watts I think.

    @mobile: i've had plants transition on and off from the juvenile to adult staged leaves during a growing season---it just indicates that the plant isnt actually mature yet. a truly mature specimen could be considered as one that flowers...

    but yes, i agree that the plant is receiving insufficient light when it develops like that.

    Thanks Thez. I need more light though. Still need to reach master Butch's level.

    Hey rl your pulchella looks fantastic. What lighting do you give it?

    I grow all my helis about 4 inches below 4 32 watt t8 bulbs and only manage a slight red blush. Plus, my helis keep putting out mature pitchers that don't increase in size. Ie, they consistently put out mature pitchers only about 3 " high and never larger. This is for minor x heterdoxa, chamntensis, and heterodoxa (and of course the minor and pulchella stay small as expected). They are all healthy and produce pitchers readily and have been making mature pitchers for several years. Yet none get more than a few inches high..so what's the secret? Does it just take many years to get them that large?

    That plant was 3-4" below power compact fluorescent bulbs (basically T-5's bent in a U shape) w/ mirror reflectors - from AH Supply. These lights were recommended by many aquatic gardeners a few years ago. I'm slowly switching over to straight T-5's w/ mirror reflectors. The distance from the lights is critical since intensity drops with an inverse-square relationship.

    I don't know the answer to your question but when I repotted several H. minor & pulchella plants this winter, I found that the root systems were immense. Maybe your plants are pot-bound?
