I live in Thailand and have my pet plant Nepenthes growing. I'm still immature so the pitcher mostly dried out but still it grows a bunch of flowers. I don't know what will happen after that.

Will its flowers dry out and drop? Will it grow any new leaves? Will it produce new pitchers? Will it grow taller next year?

  • You asked what will happen after it flowers and I mention below that it will have a rest period, grow new leaves and flower again if conditions are right. – kevinsky Apr 8 '15 at 10:56

If the pitchers dry out it is not because it is immature but due to an imperfect environment. To improve the environment:

  • These plants grow in a variety of habitats but you could not go wrong by increasing the humidity.
  • Put the plant in a terrarium surrounded by sphagnum moss or other material that retains moisture.
  • Increasing the light levels is another way to improve the habitat.
  • Use filtered or distilled water where any chlorine or chloramine has been removed.

It will flower and grow larger every year as long as conditions are optimal.

  • Actually I said I'm immature so I can't make good environment for them but I don't know why a person change my text so badly – Thaina Apr 8 '15 at 2:08
  • And that's not my question. It just grow flower already. But I want to know what will happen after this – Thaina Apr 8 '15 at 2:11
