    Flight of the Quantum Butterfly

    Hey guys,

    I wanted to make a thread showing how a Nepenthes can suddenly make a quantum leap in leaf size.

    Shown below is my N. truncata 'Pasian Highland', growing in a five inch pot. It had been growing steadily since I got it in April, but this newest leaf has just about jumped out of the pot. And it kinda looks like a big ol' green butterfly. Hence the title.

    Awesome! My highland red and highland green have both jumped up in size recently, but yours seems to have made much more dramatic gains. Good job.

    woah, no kidding when you told me it was 5x bigger at this rate you'll be able to fit the whole plant inside that monster-sized pitcher that'll produce.

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