I'v recently transferred my Nep into a terrarium and its going through a transitional period, which means some of the Pitchers are dying.
my question is what do i do with them after they die?
do i cut them? and if so then where am i supposed to cut?

The question is, is there a specific point that im suppose to cut?
and will they actually grow new ones after i'v cut the old, dead, ones?

love your collection by the way :)

, well I cut my pitchers off when the die back is about half way down the pitcher, reason , it just looks ugly and prevents any mould or fungus happening in high humidity in the green house .
as the old pitcher starts to die off , you should if your plants in the right conditions , produce new leaf and tendrils with pitcher forming on the ends of them , its the way the plant grows up ward , as one die's off the next form to replace it, if this is not happening , you need to change the climate , or conditions in your grow area quickly as its not right for them ok

The last time it happened was when the plant was just a few months old (or even younger) and since then i dont belive they've regrown.
now that they're in a new informant im hoping they'll have decent enough conditions to regrow.
