    Stem cutting making uppers?

    Last fall i chopped up the vine of my N Ramispina. It had been making uppers for months but it never flowered. The cutting I made from the tip is now putting out pitchers which I think are intermediate/uppers. Is this normal that a cutting would develop upper pitchers right away?

    Here is the first pitcher that it opened since taking the cutting (the lower pitcher you see is from a separate growth point). It appears to be an intermediate pitcher, somewhat bent tendril that comes out from the side/back of the pitcher.

    The new pitcher that is developing has a sharply bent tendril that attaches directly at the rear.

    Yeah, if the tip you cut was at the stage where it makes intermediates or uppers, that cutting will just continue that. If a basal forms on that cutting however, it will produce lowers.

    What nightsky said. Just a reminder, it'll start vining once it has rooted (since it's in the intermediate/upper pitcher stage).
