Pitcher plant with no pitchers
I have a pitcher plant that has only 1 or 2 very small pitchers. The plant is thriving, producing new shoots. The tips of the leaves look like a pitcher wants to form but they just dry out. It has doubled in size since i purchased it. I have it in good draining soil and mist it every day. I live in south Fl. It gets filtered sun about 3-4 hours a day.Do these plants get pot bound? Hope the pictures help! Thanks in advance!

These will not tolerate soil. They will normally grow in the canopy of other trees, but can be cultivated in container using a mixture of sphagnum moss and perlite. Soil will burn the newly forming pitchers, as will a lack of humidity.
