Pruning Nepenthes

This is my second attempt to send this to:

IN:pitchers on my Nepenthes. After they have been on a plant for a long time
IN:and started to fall apart, should I remove them from the plant? I assume
IN:I should leave the leaf but I wasn't sure about the pitcher itself.

Unless the leaf is carrying some kind of infection, possibly
indicated by it turning black, it will probably do no harm to leave
the leaves on the plant (hey, a pun!). If the dead parts are ugly,
just cut them off with scissors.
