Pitcher Plants

Posted by tkoppe z5 PA (My Page) on

I received a Judith Hindle, Dania's Delight, and a Northern Purple Pitcher from a few weeks ago. They are doing great on a window sill sprouting new pitchers (too cold here yet for outside). My question is, should I keep the existing pitchers that came with the plants? Will they turn green again and grow, or should I cut them off? The new pitchers are already taller then the existing ones!

Cut them off when they turn brown. New ones grow and old ones die. That's what plants do.

....and put the plants outside. American pitcher plants need all the direct sunlight that can be provided.
