nepenthes

sable(7b NY)March 23, 2013

Hi all- My nepenthes- indoors all winter with lights, outdoors in summertime- have beautiful and full leaves but are not producing pitchers. What's wrong and what can I do to encourage them to grow pitchers?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Nothing is wrong. They take a break in winter. Start feeding every 2-3 weeks with Orchid fertilizer at 1/4 strength. You can either spray the leaves with it or drench the soil.
