    Do you know what this nasty looking bump is on my Okee Giant?

    Hey guys, was checking out my Okee Giant today and noticed this nasty looking wart like thing on a rising pitcher. Any idea what it is? Some type of pest or a genetic fluke? Thanks!

    I have seen similar on plants exposed to herbicide drift. Most of the time it is one with a hormonal mode of activity. Could your neighbor have used glyphosate or 2,4-D?

    also wasps that make galls on the various trees/plants are host specific. Single genus of plants and will not hop to something un related like sarracenia.

    Lol at that clip NaN.

    kulamauiman, I honestly have no idea. I know one of my neighbors has some plants in his backyard, but nothing serious. I also haven't noticed this type of lump on any of my other plants.

    Well, today I pinched the plant's nipple. It was soft…felt empty. Doesn't seem like there is something growing inside it. I'm looking forward to dissecting it once the plant goes dormant.
