    seems healthy enough, but the vivid difference in the newer leaves versus the old leads me to think it needs something... what do you guys think?

    or am i being retarded and its going to a succulent stage?

    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    Those are winter-form leaves. It will usually initiate flower buds from these. Sometimes it will continue to bloom while summer-form leaves are developing.

    Just as Joseph said. I will ad that any slight bunp during this phase will knock those leaves off and they behave almost like gemmae.

    Yes, winter leaves. Here is a pic of one of my clones that has started forming winter leaves and has also begun flowering.
    Happy growing!

    thats great! should i change my care of the plant at this time?

    also, would it be wise to use some of these leaves to propagate some new plants, or should i wait til spring?

    Propagate some new plants! Your plant is healthy and happy, and it wants company! P. esseriana is easy to propagate with leaf cuttings/pullings/bumpings.

    Aren't they supposed to have a cold/dry season, now? BTW, mine are behaving likewise, sitting on a window sill in the unheated stairway.
