    Hello!

    I prunned some of my ventricosa plants like a month ago. One of those plants is showing a real crazy new growth. On the 2 newest leaves there are 2 pitchers developing on each leaf.



    Here you can see a brighter pic. I know it is blury and it is not of a good quality, but you can see the tips of those 2 pitchers shining.


    Lokking closser, but with the same low quality picture, you can see that the growing point has also 2 pitchers in the same leaf:


    I made the prunning while we were going thru the dry season here in PR. But now that rain has come back the old plants are producing the new growing points. This plant, in specific, is the only one that is in shade, the other plants are under full sun. But this one is under a huge Juniper square hanging pot that gives it shade the whole day. So, since there is a lot of rain and this plant is recieving too much shade, I guess that the humidity is too high and is causing this.

    What do you think?

    Maybe there's a good chance that you've induced fasciation in your plant - the new growth may have been damaged in one way or another (so many possibilities). That would be very neat. I have seen this happen before though, on a newly rooted N. fusca cutting, but never beyond the first fully developed leaf.

    Thanks for sharing with us!

    Cheers

    I will try to take better and cleared pics. I'll give it a week or so, to see better development.

    At first i thought this was a singularity of 1 leaf, but looking at the other new leaf, it shows the same characteristic. Let's see if the mutation will appear in the next leaves. And if both pitchers from each leaf develop.

    I'll keep you updated.
