    You're asking me? I am a Nep Nurd, and have never looked at their taxonomy. I assume the lamina would be regarded at the actual pitcher, the tendril being that which attaches the lamina to the petiole. But you'd be better off asking Tony to be sure.

    Since we are now having Florida weather, I decided to put more plants outside, including my collection of "weeds" - the spats. The last inch of the now horizontal stalk has turned upwards. A second stalk grew a few inches over the weekend and is totally vertical. A third stalk has emerged. Are the tendrils the red hairs of the stalk?

    Jim, my spats' flower stalks do the exact same thing yours are doing. Every one of them look healthy and grow straight up, but at some point they lean and become horizontal from the weight.

    Thanx, Jaje61: Hmmmm. Do they still bloom and produce seeds for you?

    Yes, the tips of the stalks curve upwards, as you were saying, and last year they bloomed like crazy. I think my biggest one had 10 or more stalks altogether. This year they are starting to do the same thing. I am still trying to get the knack of getting the seeds out without a lot of flower parts mixed in though...

    This is comforting! Although I have read techniques in getting to seed pods in time and collecting, this will be my first attempt.
