 Pitcher plants are easy to grow with the basic info:
Full-partial sun, always distilled water, always wet/boggy soil, a mix
of peat moss and sand or perlite. And a few bugs. ;-)

Um, that's for Sarracenias, actually. Which type of pitcher plants did
you have? Nepenthes are more tricky but still need the soft water.
