|well that's good to know. Only strage thig is it is only that one leaf. All of the other leaves are green. |
Nepenthes x judith finn usually does that, the leaves come out red, and later on they turn green.
SirKristoff is a poopiehead
That's kind of weird, judging from the first pitcher I was starting to think it may be a judith finn. I'm no where near an expert on nepenthes so I wouldn't give my guess much merrit.
The leaf didn't start out red, it's a full grown leaf with a pitcher bud on it. All the other leaves are green.
After reading what you said about the new leaves I looked at the newest leaf, which is only about two inches long, and still hasn't uncurled yet, and the underside of the leaf is red. The top is green. It's still a very small leaf. I'll keep watching it and see what it does.
So long as it's getting adequate humidity a bit of sunburn is not gonna do any damage. Howevre, if your humidity is low and it is getting very bright light the heat generated by the sunlight can burn and dry up and turn rusty brown and not so much pinkish red of a healthy sunburn.
Judith Finn will have reddish brown leaves upon opening which later turn solid green as the leaf fully expands and the tendril begins to drop and for the "hook" or "bud".
