At last, I got my first upper pitcher. Nothing extraordinary since quite a few growers managed this feat before but it's a real joy for me to achieve the same result in windowsill growing conditions:

Thanks for the nice comments.
My windowsill conditions are as followed: south east exposed large window with plants standing on shelves. Humidity is low. Last time I recorded was between 60 and 30% depending of the time of the day or night. Plants get extra light in winter (tubes).
Martin, there is a couple of precautions indeed, depending on the original conditions experienced by a plant prior to its arrval in my collection (TC, greenhouse or terrarium grown...). Generally, I put the newly arrived plant in a plastic bag that I gradually opened in the course of 2 to 4 weeks. I also place the plant in a shady spot of the windowsill (behing a big pot for instance).
Please check this thread where I developed further:
I didn't examine the fluid, Greg. I will keep you updated. ;-)
