    I thought about doing that, but I've read that certain Nepenthes don't do as well in water, and I was more worried about rotting my cutting. I'll probably try the water method next time.

    Now, why would you want to rot your cutting? XD

    Another update. Looks like it's making normal leaves now.

    Update: 7/31/08

    I believe the next leaf will produce a tendril and a pitcher. The weird looking, deformed leaves have sort of grown on me. It's definitely an interesting transition from proto-leaf to deformed leaves, to normal growth.
