    My Nepenthes truncata (Pasian) did something similar to yours a few years back. What is more, you are likely to see a doubling and tripling in the size of the pitchers over the course of perhaps a single season. When the first mature pitchers struck, they were about 10cm or so; and, by the end of the year, it was common to see 30 cm (12") pitchers. It remains one of my favorite species.

    Congratulations . . .

    I have had such a leap in size from an N. sanguinea, the leaves grew twice as long after some coffee sessions.
    x2 for me.

    Thanks guys,

    Big Bella, nice looking truncata there, and helis as well.

    Just curious, but have you ever had problems uploading pics of your unopened truncata's with any of the imaging sites. The reason I ask, is that not too long ago, a fellow on this forum had mentioned that an imaging site had removed images of his unopened truncata that he had posted. Apparently the photo uploading site had deemed the images as being inappropriate. I find it amusing that the photo uploading site would bestow upon itself the moral authority to define and legislate Nep porn.

    Mess with the tendril so the pitcher forms right under the plant, then see if you can pot the plant in its own pitcher!

    That fellow with the uploading problems was me. I uploaded them three times and the last was the charm. Here are the offending photos (remove any children from the room).
