What other plant parents say
There’s no such thing as overwatering when it comes to pitcher plants. They’re so fun to take care of, and when you learn of their growth cycle and how to prep for it, they’re easy to keep alive. Even if it looks like the plant is totally dead, clear off the brown pitchers, repot that hunk of root base, and add water. In the spring they will shoot back up.
