Q.Pitcher plant

Zone Roanoke Va 24014 | Anonymous added on June 5, 2019 | Answered

The pitchers that hang from a little vine like piece from the leaves got brown and dried, so I cut them off to tidy up the plant. When and how do I get it to have pitchers again?

Pitchers should stay around for a while, and usually will not dry up unless there are already plenty forming to replace it. If they are all drying up, then this will indicate a problem. Although Nepenthes alata will be the easiest of the pitcher plants, and most forgiving, it will still be VERY picky about its environment.
