I have two Nepenthes questions:
1. Since my N.ventricosa produced a basal shoot and flowered a few months ago, the main part of the plant doesn't seem to be producing pitchers anymore. The main vine is still producing plenty of leaves, but they're getting smaller and smaller (it used to produce 6" leaves with pitchers, now only 2-3" leaves), while the basal shoot is producing larger and larger leaves and is pitchering just fine. Any ideas what might be in store for the main vine? Will it just produce leaves from here on out or will it start pitchering again in the future?
2. My N.sanguinea has stopped pitchering completely. It's still producing plenty of 9" long leaves, but the buds at the ends never swell up. Is this typical winter behavior for an N.sanguinea? My N.ventricosa (above), N.spectabilis, and N.fusca are pitchering fine in the same growing conditions (they're all next to each other). Should I be concerned?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
