    I have noticed that basal shoots will start with lower pitchers.
    Shoots off the vine can vary.

    Lowers if its near the bottom. You can chop the big vine back if you wish to.

    i have seen offshoots on ventricosa, most are lower pitchers and it ends up looking as if a baby plant is growing on the side of your ventricosa

    Same thing is happening w/ my carunculata. If you don't chop any of the stems off, you end up with multiple vines that can all flower or be chopped off, divided, and traded for other species!
