newly forming pitchers wrinkling up and dying (not brown)
I have a pitcher plant that has been growing good this past fall and winter but is now getting new green pitchers that suddenly shrivel up at the top after a few days of being open. There is plenty of humidity. It has bog soil conditions (moist soil). Why are the pitchers doing this? It is kept in the shade. But my grandmother did wash a bucket outside of the screenroom (this is where it is-on a table inside the screenroom-not in the bucket) on the pavement about 8 feet from it with clorox. Did the clorox cause any fumes in the air that would hurt the pitchers? Also my mother sometimes smokes cigarettes outside the screenroom. Could this hurt the pitcher plant?
