Hi everyone! This was my first nepenthes bill bailey that I've gotten and its been a while since I've gotten it but I have a concern its been growing this really long thing that grows the pitchers but I realised nothings really happening. Its been in the same length for a while now and its just not growing a pitcher :( why is this? Ive been growing this outdoors with so much direct sunlight 6+ hours. Ive heard that having a greenhouse makes these nepenthes grow like crazy so I bought myself a little walk in greenhouse and moved it in there. would this help it pitcher?

is the very end, dry and brown? To me it looked like it was growing a pitcher, just not developed yet. How long have you had it? My personal experience from cuttings is that it takes a few new "leaves" after it roots, and starts to grow before it will develop mature pitchers. When I had mine outside every new leaf would grown but no pitchers after 3 months. Brought it inside, controlled the humidity and less light than outside, and it started to make pitchers and keep them.
Maybe someone else with more experience can chime in here. I saw your post was unanswered so I wanted to say hi, and share my personal experience. But I am far from experienced.
