    Phylodia on daina's delight... is this normal?

    Last year, i bought a dainas delight. Since last october, there have been two phyllodia sprouts, and now one is coming up (or it;s a pitcher) it is almost flowering, i was wondering if i could discourage this

    I think that this is normal. I am not sure exactly, but I believe that there is a phylodia producing species somewhere in the mix. I am not certain. I don't think it can be discouraged, but you may want someone elses opinion.

    It's perfectly normal. The only way I can think of to "discourage" it is to give it more sunlight, but I'm sure you have it in the brightest spot available. My S. x 'Dana's Delight' has produced tons of phyllodias.

    It is normal, one of Danas Delight's parents is S. leucophylla which is a known phyllodia producer
