    btw, if it does make a basal, just leave it and it will be fine. You don't need to do anything about it unless it puts out more than 2 basals at once, as having two total growing points isn't going to hurt the plant, especially at that size.

    Is more than 2 basals cause for concern? I have a gymnamphora with a few basals that started shortly before I received the plant. It does seem like it has slowed the overall growth, and each successive leaf/pitcher is smaller than the previous. The plant does not seem to be dying, but it is a little disconcerning to see the pitchers getting smaller and smaller (on the main growth point), almost reverting to a younger stage.

    BTW congrats on the Talangensis Vraev! Mine still hasn't pitchered for me yet, but it is looking healthy. I am guessing it was because of the hot summer in which I received it.

    That's what I'm talking about will happen. In some cases, having a lot of basals has killed the main vine, while the basals continue to grow.

    yup....totally agree to PK on that .. My ventrata has like 6 basals. the main growth vine suddenly blackened its tip. The interesting thing is the leaves on that vine are still healthy and nice...and this blackening occured like 5 months ago. and right when it occured the 6th basal sprouted.

    thanks nepenthes, I have my fingers crossed that this pitcher won't dry up...but...I guess for now...I am just looking for new growth.

    cheers,

    vraev
