Nepenthes alata

My nepenthes alata grows vigorously (it's about 6 feet tall) but most of the pitchers die back - see photo. I only use rain water and it's never seen fertiliser. It's in a well-lit, south-facing conservatory in southern England but not in direct sun

6 feet!!! big plant. how soon do the pitcers die off. they should live for at least a month.

RE: Nepenthes alata

Thats usually a direct problem with humidity. Try increasing it
