    Hello:::

    My ampullaria has produced a very odd pitcher. It's a green form, and it has made a spotted pitcher. I can't say for sure if it has always been spotted or not, as I don't keep a close observation on all of its many traps.



    What has been the cause of this oddity?

    (added): I just noticed some of the other pitchers growing near this one are developing spots as well.

    It does it on its own, or if the top part is doing poorly (like if you cut it off) I believe it will as well. Basal growth is a normal thing for amp though.

    That's quite interesting. All I can figure is that it has been a spotted form all along and it's just now showing its true characteristics. Did you up the wattage in your tank recently?

    Not at all, though it is worth noting that the pitcher with the spots is one of the closest to the lights.

    Here's a "fun fact" about my amp: It actually originally WAS supposed to be spotted. When dean shipped me it, I thought he screwed up on my order. For the 2 years (approx) that I've had it, its never made any spots on its pitchers.

    haha yeah. Still weird though, I hope we can figure out what happened exactly.

    For the record, the plant was a great deal and it came with a 7 inch diameter

    I received an equally good sized N. ampullaria (Green) from Dean Cook a while back too. I've been bouncing it around my collection lately, so it unfortunately hasn't had a good chance to grow well.
