A couple pitchers on my S. minor keep falling over, especially in a strong storm. I put a couple rocks for them to lean on so they stay up but they still slide off in a storm and fall over again. Is this bad for the plant? Is there anything I can do to keep this from happening?

It happens, especially when the plant has not been subjected to the elements before (i.e. grown indoors), but do not worry, it will grow new pitchers which will be stronger (although in my opinion a little shorter).

Hi PR

Whe mine get knocked over I support them with canes and thin wire so they wont get blown over again, they soon develop some turgidity and get stronger to withstand wind. In teh wild they often have shorter surrounding vegetation to 'lean' on when the wind blows.
