Pitchers drying up

by Joey8375 » Mon Jun 27, 2011 6:22 pm

When I got my pitcher plant Some of the pitchers were brown and dry. One was dry on the rim and another has a slit in the bottom of the pitcher.
Now the pitcher with the slit is all dry and the pitcher with the dry rim is half dried up. Is there a way to help the already dried up ones? Is there a way to prevent this? :( P.s I don't know what species it is.

The new growth will replace the ones drying up.
Drying up is normal, so there is no problem.

Well did you recently get the plant? If so it's probably adjusting to it's new environment which takes about a month or so.
Drying up pitchers are completly normal in this case. You'll just have to wait a bit and eventully your plant will put up
new gorgeous pitchers
