    Too many side shoots?

    I got this Nepenthes a few months ago as a 3 foot vine that I chopped into bits. I think it's a ventricosa but anyway. I am concerned that it has gotten a little carried away making side shoots.



    There are a total of nine activated nodes and over half of them are making full fledged leaves. So referring back to my title, do you think I need to trim off some side shoots and if so when, and how many?

    Thanks,
    -J.P.

    I know nothing about growing Neps, but if it doesn't hurt it, I think a nine vine plant would look very cool.

    Want to know my secret?

    Thanks guys! I might leave it as is for a little while and see what happens with it. Oddly enough the cuttings I took from the plant still haven't rooted yet this little thing is going all out crazy.

    If anyone else has any input I am more than willing to listen!

    Thanks guys,

    You know that isn't soluble in water right? PM me for a recipe if you don't have NaOH to dissolve it in. I've worked a little frontier chemistry to get it in solution lol.

    Give it more light and fertilise lightly. That would help the plant get enough food and nutrients to support the growth of so many lateral shoots.
