  1. I have a nepenthe Alana (I think) that’s been vigorously growing for about four years. It has well over 100 growing tips with some tendrils over 20 feet in length. This year, after flowering in March, new branches started growing from a node just beneath the flower spike. As I’m not looking for seed I’ve cut off the flowers soon after they appeared fortunately the branches continued to grow on at least 50% of the growing tips plus all the other branching that develop normally. The new pitcher development is abundant A problem I’ve had in the past, I’m hoping not this year, is that although the pitchers last a long time, if fact many from last year are still alive and packed with insects, they (the upper half of the pitchers ) turn brown within the first 2-3 months. This doesn’t seem problematic for the overall health of the plant but it isn’t very attractive. Does anyone know a way to prevent it or at least stop it from happening this year - photo attached _
