How much translocation of nutrients is there in neps? Does each pitcher provide nutrients primarily for it's specific leave and neighbors? Should one attempt ballance by either feeding all at the same time or alternating, or would feeding one pitcher per plant be just as good.
Feeding just one pitcher benefits the whole plant. The best results would probably be obtained from feeding several pitchers small but frequent meals. Giving the plant a steady supply of nutrients.
Keep in mind also, a pitcher can only stomach so much before things will begin to rot because it can't digest it all. I would agree with small feedings or rotation giving each pitcher a good chance to deal with that is left.
