Unfortunately, these plants are very, very picky about their environment. This will, also, depend on the type of pitcher plant that you have. American pitcher plants have slightly different requirements than those in the genus, Nepenthes. If any of the care routine that you are providing differs, at all, from the care that they require, then they will die off. This can be considered a difficult plant, even, for experienced gardeners!
