    A strange thing that I just noticed: A leaf just unfurled, but I can't see the next leaf. There is nothing there at all!!!
    is that ok? Should I be worried? I'm freaking out!
    I don't want to have killed my first lowland nep!!!!
    you can see what i'm talking about in the pic...it's the slightly curved one facing outwards

    Thanks by the way for the comments

    That looks good dude. That's how I like nepenthes, before they start to climb (Or in N. raff, out) and get big

    I'm sure the meristem isn't dead and you just can't see it yet. Even if somehow it was broken and lost then the plant will return from nodes.

    I only grow raff gigantea, and I can always see the next leaf, but trust me, its nothing to worry about. When the last leaf of my rajah unfolded, I couldn't see the growing tip for a few days, and now its back out and continuing to grow.

    Even if you accidentally broke the growth tip and dont know it, it'll be fine. I've broken many of them, and the plant just lags for a few weeks, then resumes normal growth from the same point with a new growth tip

    ok, thanks
    I guess that there is nothing big to really worry about then since I littlerally haven't dared to touch it (except to take that pic) because I don't want to hurt it.
