    Going by memory, it seems to have a few extra red spots on it. Mine took a permanent swim down a streamlet a few weeks ago, having been dislodged by torrential rain.

    Yeah, I had this creative idea for keeping its roots cool by having it anchored to the side of a streamlet running behind us. What I didn't count on was the strength of a persistent rainstorm, raising the water level, and carrying it off to who knows where. I found the empty pot, the styro cooler lid I had it emplaced, and the metal weed puller I had plunged into the ground. Very embarassing!

    Is it possible that the "mutant" is just a very old leaf, on the decline?

    hehe jim,

    i don't think its a mutant myself but I need other peoples opinion within the same field. Also, are you looking at the juvenile in the middle? it has a single needle like structure protruding from the top of the head instead of a forked tongue attached to the inner bottom part of the hood.

    Its amazing with the ideas you can come up with. I guess you'll never plant them next to the stream again.

    Looks like the top part is yellowing and dying from some infection lower down. There looks like a big brown patch which is nearly encircled the pitcher. The red spots is that an outbreak of botrytis? I am not much of a plant pathologist but that is deffinately some pathogen. The new leaves on the right side look nice and clean though.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
