    You'll see little "hooks" at the end of the leaves and those will grow into pitchers.

    Mine, in an even earlier phase, are just long stubs of hairyness.

    Thanks guys, well I hope soon my bellii show some progress... I mean at this point the most rescent leave looks diferent at the tip on relation to the last 2 my plant get after come home... so maybe this one will be the ONE!!! (the tip is still to small to describe with more relevant details, but i can see it have like some sort of mini spikes or some like, a diference to the others one that just have a small "ball" at the end with no signal of this structures)

    I guess the fact of how old was the original plant from were my cut comes have a lot to do with how long will take for the nepenthes to develop pittchers as the strength of the plant too.

    Patience. It'll form pitchers in the right conditions.

    I have a N. medusa (Bellii x Sibuyanensis) and it has one long blood red tendril in the J position. It did nothing for nearly a month, then I cut one of it's growth points off and put it in water for it to root, and then it produces a very tiny leaf compared to the others with no J for a hook. My N. ventricosa likes pouring out leaves J'ed with about 50% room humidity, next to light, and is growing fast I've had it for two months. I've been patient with the pitchers. How long have you had the bellii? It's not going to grow pitchers in 3 days you know.

    In fact, I've never had a Nepenthes thats pitchered before.

    mmm... like 2 moths, when I get it my bellii the cut already have on the bottom leaves the tendril and a small pitcher... the sad part is the fact this leaves was the ones that more suffer of the shock of the transport and the process to acclimatize to the house and get +-60% dry... so the tendril and the pitcher die.

    The next pair of leaves just get dry only on the tip, actualy my belli get 2 more leaves that are entirely green with no problem, show some kind of tendril, have a clear orange color, no too long and with a small round tip at the end.

    The new leave has come out a couple of days ago, and show the same kind of structure than the previous ones, but this one show kind of "spikes" on the "ball" at the end of the tendril (what after read the post of jimscott I could suspect can be a pitcher...)
