    Nepenthes Growth Points

    I believe the new leaves come from the top of the plant but my friend broke off his top leaf accidentally. How long will it take for this plant to rebound and produce new leaves with pitchers?

    If im wrong, how and where does the N. Sanguria produce new leaves and pitchers?

    N. sanguinea

    they come from the top. your friends plant will probably halt growth. sanguinea is a tough plant though and it will probably make a basal shoot or a stem offshoot. itll be ok. how big is it?

    I specifically remember answering this question before. Did you use the search feature?

    It will take approximately the same amount of time it would have taken for the broken leaf to grow and the next one under it to start developing, had nothing ever happened. This is different for everyone because we all have different conditions. If you broke off the meristem, a node should activate in a couple of weeks.

    you say the top leaf... did you remove the VERY NEWEST growth? In other words, is the top of the plant a stump, or a growing point?

    Well then nothing is going to come out of the stump. Just wait a bit and it will throw out a basal or another node will activate.
