    2 weeks after i have sown the pollens hundreds of the babes are sprouting. Today i noticed sort of tiny pitchers on some of them. I am not sure. took pics of one and post here . Perhaps experienced growers can comment.Thank you again.

    i have also wondered that. id say yes just because it looks like one and because there is a lid and a "feather" of a wing

    Congratulations on the babies, Robert. You could consider the leaf development as a 'proto-pitcher' I'm sure there is a proper botanical name for it. The plant is so young it has not differentiated fully all it's anatomical parts.

    Very cool! I have a few Nep seedlings that look similar to that, with the pitcher not fully developed yet.
