If you're still on a 15" CRT screen and AOL, it's time to upgrade (unless you have a laptop in which case you need to bump up the res).
    I agree, for the most part. I just don't like having to use the horizontal scroll bar when reading the messages throughout the post. The picture resizes the entire thread to fit it, and then I have to keep scrolling left and right for every line. Big pictures are great, but I'd rather open them in a different tab and view them independently of the forum.

    I still am having trouble seeing a whole other pitcher, but I can convince myself that I see one. Perhaps it's time to cut away the outer pitcher for a better investigation?

    I see it you are looking down at the picher inside it is not an uninflated pitcher but one that has already developed you can see it's wings and the top of the lid if you look closely.
    It is rather green.

    what it looks like to me.... the person you got it from cut off an old pitcher. made a hole at the base and stuck a new developing tendril. and it grew form there. the way that pitcher is positioned....it isnt right. way to horizontal.

    Very weird. Try to see if you can get a better shot. Does your camera have macro? If not, you can ghetto rig it by taking a pic through a magnifying glass.

    Frankenstein nep? It can't be that. I doubt someone would do that, also the old pitcher would be completely browned if it wasn't attached to the plant.

    Looks like its one of those cases where a person finds out theres actually parts of a fetus inside them... except its a nep pitcher.

    I've had some weird mutant growth at the bottom of pitchers before, but never a whole other well-formed pitcher. There must've been some deformity or injury to the growth tip as it was developing... seems like somewhere along the line the plant forgot to terminate the leading end of the tendril once it began to spread out into the pitcher/true leaf part of development. Hooray for embryology!
