    hmm well odd it deffinately is..

    Looks like the meristematic tissue at the growth point got confused and didn't know what it was doing.

    Guessing it will make a new growth from a leaf axil at some point.

    Just a wild guess, did you buy this as "N. alata" from a seller on Ebay?
    My plant from them started doing this after it made a few leaves, which were progressively smaller and the pitchers it made grew all weird and deformed. Now the plant has looked like yours and is not getting any better after some months. I am going to try and restart the plant from a node further down the stem but I am quite convinced there is something seriously wrong with their plant.
    If you didn't get it from Ebay I still think it looks like mine does, messed up! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
