    They is what? They is a very vague word, pronoun even. I think they refers to genes, which means their genes would have evolved, but idk, the adults who have college degrees should come disagree/agree or something.

    They as in carnivorous plants... the CPs evolved to the nutrient poor surroundings, right? I didn't think that a gene made plants carnivorous, as you stated. o.o

    Halt, I have 4 known females in my collection, none of which go through the little lid syndrome, while a couple of my known males do. What does that say to your "hypothesis"

    Little lid syndrome, it could be something else, such as getting a bigger leaf, it could also be something so tiny that you don't even notice. idk. it makes sense to me.

    But it makes no sense to anyone else...
    Humans/animals =/=Plants. Even if a Nepenthes is female, their reproductive system doesn't work exactly the same as humans/animals.

    Also, how does a bigger leaf cause Small Lid Syndrome?

    Edit: Lol, BigBella.
