I have had my highland N. veitchii for about 5 years now from a tiny TC speciman. This year I repotted it and it grew well. Over the last few days the latest pitcher has opened and the next leaf is starting to develop. Today I saw what is either a brown tinge to the top of the leaf which has yet to unfurl. As it is quite small I am not sure whether it might actually be a more red/pink colour. If its red/pink like the pitchers themselves I guess its okay. If it turns out to be brown [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
Last winter I lost a N. fallax which suddenly almost overnight developed brown edges to its new leaf. I am hoping that history is not repeating itself. It has been quite cold this week, so I have had my greenhouse heater on. The plant would get the benefit of the warmer air but is not so close to the heater to cause brown leaves. Is it likely that N. veitchii can develop a reddish tinge to its leaves?
