Hey all, first time posting here. I have a pitcher plant (I'm not sure the exact kind) that seems very happy and is shooting out new leaves often! The only problem is it's not putting out any pitchers either...

I have my grow lights shining on it at least 11-12 hours a day (my other plants love the lights), I keep it very decently humid in the room that it's in (again, all my other plants are happy), and I make sure to only use rainwater to water and I keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Still no pitchers!

What should I do to help this otherwise happy plant put out some pitchers? Possibly repot in larger pot?? It has one that's been there for quite some time but it is very very small, and the mouth never opened, and a second I think may be growing?? I will attach photos! TIA!

I'd say the plant needs a repot soon. That pot looks way too small. It looks like it needs some more light. Are the grow lights the only light it is recieving? If so the grow lights should be on for 12-14 hours. Do you have a measure of the humidity? Nepenthes like at least 75%RH(relative humidity)

Thanks for the quick reply! I wasn't sure if it was okay to repot these things, so thanks! Will do. And actually it's receiving light from them on from 9am to at least 8pm, so 11 hours? I'll try and edit the original post, idk what I was thinking when I said 5 lol..

I do not have a measure of the humidity but it has to be at the very least 50% in here. I'll have to get something to measure. I can always move it closer to the humidifier?

Thanks again for your help!!
