Its not impossible for it to come back, but i wouldnt give it a high probability. It could also be a slow process, the main stem looks dead and the only chance is if some of the main stem underground is undamaged and it can grow a side shoot. It might take upto several months for it to appear.

I would cut the dead bits off and make sure its getting enough light, you might get a surprise in a few months.

So like the brown leaves? And leave the only one? Ive placed it on a south facing window sill and gets quite a bot of light:)

Hi there,

Nepenthes are very forgivable. But after it's damaged you have to give it perfect (not outside in the uk!) conditions. Keep the humidity high. Please please don't grow nepenthes in an unheated greenhouse, it's a recipe for disaster, as I have mentioned before. You'll waste your money, and nobody likes to do that.

I wish you the best of luck in the recovery of your plant.

Thanks

Oliver
