I got this baby in one of HH contests I believe like a year ago. He is putting out pitchers but doesnt seem to be growing much larger any time soon lol Is this normal? Anything I can do for him? Right now I have him outside on my South East facing patio here in Cypress TX.

I have found neps to be slow, especially when they are small. From the color on the leaves, the SE patio may be too much sun. Does it get direct sun or is it shaded?

He gets direct morning sun until noon/1pmish then its shaded from then on. Too much? I could move him or bring him in. He was just one that sounded like he needed the warmer outside temps.

I would give it a bit more shade but it doesn't need to come inside. I find that a couple of hours of early morning sun andnthen dappled shade the rest of the day works best for me.
