    Wow. That is wild. That is much more "guided" than mine. Good looking pitcher, though... lol. Keep us posted on what you decide to do.

    Looks like snug shipping to me. Are you sure it didn't arrive with that leaf already on there?
    Nothing to worry about anyway. Leave it be if not dying.

    yeah it got that way in shipping. good news is that pitcher is sitting directly between two flourescent bulbs. best case i'll see my black dragon turn black sooner, worst case the pitcher will die and i wont feel too bad about grooming it off

    Did you chop it off because it was getting burned by the lights or because it was inconvienent?

    inconveniant. as much as i would have loved to keep the leaf, it was messing the whole setup of my then tiny terrarium, and to be honest i like neat-looking neps. considering that one leaf was headed straight up, and new leaves that developed in the direction would be messed up as well. its just better this way and i swear, the plant shrugged it off like nothing happened.
