    White Thing on new leaf's tip?

    There is this white thing on a the tip of my Nepenthe Sanguinea's leaf. I know that this isn't mealy bugs cause it doesn't move or appear to have a body.
    I asked a person about what it might be, and they said that it is a thing to protect the new pitchers. This nepenthes is new and I only had it for a month or so...(I am also new to growing nepenthes, as this is my first one ) So, what do you guys think it is?

    The fuzzy bit at the very end? That is the start of a new tendril, at the end of which will soon be a new pitcher.

    A bit of a drive, now, to make the BACPS meetings.


    Glad to help. Nope, not a fungus, but a growth for sure!
