If you're growing it under flourescents, I think you should definately
remove the leaves. In my experience, _Cephalotus_ likes high light
levels. In fact, I've been growing mine for about 2 years with 4-6
hours of direct sun a day and it looks great.

I have heard that _Cephalotus_ produces larger, greener pitchers if given
reduced light levels. I don't know if this is truth or rumor, though.

Hope this helps,
