    TC mutation or cultural issue?

    Hi guys,

    Some of you may remember my enthusiastic post about my first nepenthes flowering.

    I got some aristolochioides pollen from a local canadian grower and fertilized it early in december.

    I had hoped that what I was seeing was the start of a fruit and maybe a small chunk of viable seed to produce some more aristolochioides individuals in cultivation.

    Well...check this out for bonkers.





    What u are seeing is the brown flower that I tried to fertilize (notice the pollinia stuck to it).

    But...now it is constantly making these single ONE flowers every leaf. This is instead of the regular long flower spike with multiple flowers.

    Another weird thing is...I never bothered to fertilize the other flower (to not tire the plant and let it only make one fruit). But this one shows a bigger fruit than the one I tried fertilizing.

    Any idea of whats happening here?

    cheers,

    varun

    I can't say I've ever seen anything like that before.
