    Unhappy

    Hi [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
    It's my first time growing N. ampullaria from tissue culture which I bought last year.The bottle labelled 'N. ampullaria' with certification paper from one lab. Now those plants grow so well with pitchers on every leaf end.What a problem is all pitchers are cylindrical and the lids are round , no unique character of ampullaria at all.
    Something wrong ? Or they need time to develop ?
    Thanks for your opinion

    I did a bit of copying and pasting to the address bar and found this picture. I then followed through with the Image tab and more copy & paste. Is this the picture?

    That's crazy, the way the pitchers are attached without tendrils. What's up with that? It's certainly not ampullaria - the lids are totally wrong, and the peristome doesn't have that inward slant to it. It appears to me to have some sort of mutation, like many TC plants. Of course, I suppose it could be an ampullaria, but it's mutation supresses the ampullaria characteristics. Whatever it is, it's a keeper - you could call it "Nepenthes sanstendrilis." I wonder what it would look like if it tried to make an upper pitcher.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Sometimes TC mutations disappear over time. Still, I agree- that looks nothing like ampullaria.

    There is very little you can tell from a plant that small recently from TC. There is nothing unusual about the way it looks. It wouldn't suprise me if it started to look like N. ampullaria in 6-12months.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I've never seen any pitchers without tendrils before... Tony, do you mean to say that this is a typical occurance in young TC plants? I've seen leaves without pitchers or tendrils, and pitchers on tendrils without leaves, but never a leaf and pitcher with nothing in between. Very interesting.

    I've found that all seedlings start out that way, TC or not.
