Sorry about the potentially silly question, but what tendril end do I cut to remove a dead pitcher, the top end or the bottom one?

Never mind. I just answered my own question. If I cut the bottom end, most of the pitcher would still hand from the plant. Gee, the question was silly.

Lowland- 1600-3280 FT Nepenthes Merrilliana
Intermediate- 3280-4921 FT Nepenthes Truncata
Highland- 4921-6561 FT Nepenthes Rajah
Ultrahighland- 6561-11,581 FT MAX Nepenthes Lamii

Hope this helps

My soil mix is 3:1 Rice Husk and Coir. I call it "Pitcher Mix" because it works for sarracenia too.
