    Unusual Heliamphora growth. any idea why it did this?

    Gr8oz and I found one of the heliamphoras like this in the greenhouse today. having what looks like a pitcher, on an emerging flower stalk. picture is attached, we just thought it was weird and wondered if anyone had any explanations?

    yes. it's a flowerstalk. heliamphoras are primative plants, it's not surprising that the lamina on the flowerstalk make pitchers as well. fortifies the belief that flowers are modified leaf structures.
