    Nepenthes Pitcher FREAKY!

    Ok so i just got a new N. Raff and i wass looking at the plant since it was soooo cool, well... i was looking at one of the pitchers on the outside and it was 'dying' so i decided to look inside and see what things it had caught. Well to my GREAT suprise i found a second pitcher growing inside of it from the same leaf!!!. This is absolutely weird.

    Have any of you ever heard of this happening before?

    HEre are some pics of this freak show!

    If you look the green part under the dead lid is the lid of the 'new pitcher, and those 2 red lines inside the pitcher under the 'new' lid are the fins of the new pitcher. This is weird

    Hey sorry man I don't mean to be negative, but I really can't make out what is going on in that picture...it is too out of focus. Could you possibly take another one?

    can you retake the picture but not zoom in so close, maybe then it won't be as blurry.

    So a pitcher is inflating inside of another pitcher? Normal.

    Does your camera have a macro setting? If not, take the picture from a bit further out. I can't tell what I'm seeing either.

    Haha, you crack me up. Way to downplay someone's excitement.

    Lol yeah. It's not the most common thing, but it happens enough to not be alarmed at all.
