    The Predator uppers are all green and rarely pitcher for me... the lowers have the colouration and pitcher practically every leaf.
    If that cutting was of the upper vine, that would probably explain why it took so long to pitcher and that it's all green.

    Heya quoque..I was wondering what coloration you were getting on your predator before it went into upper pitcher production?

    You can see in the Tipitiwitchet website I have... look under Carnivorous Plants -> Nepenthes -> Predator

    I am kinda curious now for what these rooted Predatoe cuttings are going for...

    Try to vary the temperature and photoperiod a bit. If it is treated like a highlander, allow it to warm a bit; conversely, if treated as a lowlander or intermediate (as some do), cool it down. Futzing with the Tb has worked in my experience with Nepenthes x "Predator.'' Also, alternatively exposing it to bright light and shade or diffused light can be helpful . . .

    Here it is! Whether it's an upper or lower I'm not sure?? At this point I'm just glad to have a pitcher to look at.
