    ok..i saw a bud like thing rising from the pot soil..

    and it looks like some kind offshoot...

    if it is.. what do you do with it?

    and do you think thats why my plant only produced leaves?

    thanks!
    does anybody have a N. tentaculata?

    Yes, that is most like a basal shoot. I would wait until it gets a bit bigger, before you think about cutting it for a new plant.

    Some people just let the basal growth grow and it eventually becomes a faster growing plant than the original growth point.

    I like to make new plants from them, though.

    Patience, It will take it awhile , several months, to get big enough to pitcher.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    keeping it will make the pot look more full and dense
    that makes no logic
