    hey there,

    New member here. I just bought a gubler's nep. from lowe's. It is like no other i have ever seen. The pitchers form with no lid at all. just a little stem where the lid should be. I was wondering if anybody has ever seen this before. I am with out access to a camera right now but i will try to get a picture up soon.
    Thanks,
    chris

    Hi and welcome to the forums!

    One thing: Are you sure it's a nep? These store brands are famous for mis-labeling their products.

    In that case, it may be a mutation, but it also may be that the lids have all wilted and broken off. If you got it at lowes it no doubt hasn't been too well cared for

    Anyway, give it a little TLC and when new pitchers develope see what happens. If you really do have a liddless mutation, cuttings from that sucker will be hotly sought after. Mutations are really cool.

    I guess we can't really say with too much conviction without a picture. This is just me blowing some smoke!

    Is it a Nepenthes ampullaria?
    This is the most common Nep I can think of that makes a lid which is like a tiny stem. Here's a pic (not mine) that I found online:

    Hello Orien, I've seen young immature Neps form half-fommed or incomplete pitchers, such as a N. truncata from TC which develops very slowly and struggles to form a mature pitcher even under supposedly 'ideal' conditions. If your plant is small (from Lowe's, probably so), I would be inclined to think that poor growing conditions during transport coupled with being a young plant would very easily produce an ill-formed pitcher. You may know that pitcher development in an othewise healthy looking Nepenthes is directly affected by the more exacting cultural requirements of the particular species.
