  1. Dying hummers giant

    If the cephs around share the same conditions and still look fine, you should also consider a fungus attack. These little bastards can kill your plants within a few days, and the pics you showed look pretty much the same to me. Maybe the plant has been weakened by some inappropriate heat before. I'd remove all the withered leaves and pitchers, repot the rhizom into fresh soil (and a new pot!) and treat both this ceph and all of the cephs around with a fungicide. There is no guarantee for a recover, but I'd give it at least a try. With a little luck, the ceph will grow out of the rhizom again in a few weeks or months... Good luck and successful growing! IWC
  2. You don't need to cut your flowers ....

    In my experience, an additional treatment with hormone substances (rhizopan, clonex) on cutted VFT flower stems does not have any further positive effect on making them root. Cut them at an early stage (approx. 3 cm) and just put them into chopped sphagnum. Success rate under my conditions (ordinary GH in Southern Germany with no additional illumination) depends on the clone, mostly between 60 - 90 %. Best regards, IWC
