I have a venus flytrap named Vinnie. I got her in Februaru 2021. I also have a tropical pitcher plant named Petunia that I got in March 2021. I would like to learn how to grow new cups on Petunia. Vinnie seems to be growing rapidly, but Petunia is going slower. Any tips on growing will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Just keep it in bright, indirect sun and keep the media moist.
You said you got Petunia last month, how? Did you pick it up from a nursery? Was it shipped to you? How big is it?
Neps can take a few months to recover, especially if the stress from shipping is factored in.
Be patient, it'll eventually come around.
