Carnivorous Plants/Nepenthes


If I gave my nepenthes tap water and have only been giving it distiller water recently,would that make it so that it couldn't produce pitchers (please respond I'm beginning to think that this plant is a lost cause!

Top water can kill your plant. Use pure water, like rain or demineralized water.

You have all the good informations needed to make this plant thrive.
Just give it good growing conditions, and wait. Avoid moving, rotating, touching the plant. Just leave it alone and you will have results.

Hope i help !
