My N. x 'Judith Finn' bloomed once last fall, and a few months ago I noticed it was poised to bloom again. But I just noticed this morning that just one node higher, its sending up yet another scape! Also, an alternate growing tip growing up from the base (So, maybe a basal that formed above the media level) looks like its gonna start vining, which means it could flower soon too.
Two flower scapes
Basal, getting ready to vine, and perhaps flower soon after
But as you can see, it has no pitchers. The main vine hasn't made one since it flowered last fall, and neither has the basal. So what gives? Why would a plant be happy enough to flower, profusely, but not pitcher? Or do Nepenthes do this sort of thing when they start to vine? (This is my first and only Nepenthes that I've had go from rosette to vine...)
Thanks for any and all input!!
P.S. Incidentally, if anyone wants some N. x 'Judith Finn' pollen, just PM me. Apparently I'm gonna have a lot of it!
