    Hello! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I have right now 4 Nepenthes plants that are producing basal shoots: N. x Dominii, N. ventricosa, N. gracilis and as usal and common as it may be, N. ampullaria 'Green'.

    I took pictures of some of them today. Want to share them with you all and also want to hear about your experience with basal shoots in your Nep's.

    I have read that this is normal in most mature Nep's and that they will produce them every year. Is this correct?

    N. ventricosa, finally i will be able to see lower ventricosa pitchers:


    N. gracilis, i have counted 5 new basal shoots, is this normal? I mean, a gracilis producing so many basal shoots at the same time?:


    N. ampullaria 'Green', common but beautiful:


    Cheers,
    Jorge Joel...

    My only nep that has produced basal shoots is my N.x edinensis, so far that's the only living thing on the nep, since I hacked my nep for cuttings which seem to be working, but just in case I have a basal shoot for backup.
