    Dear all:

    I have three nepenthes in which some of the leaves have 1/16 of an inch lumps in it. 5-10 per leaf. they are not stuck to the leave, they come out of the leaf from the inside. They of the same colour of the leaf and round. The plants don't look sick at all, and the leaves looks healthy except for the presence of those tiny lumps on the upper surface.

    I look forward to anybody's input. Thanks

    Agustin

    Most likely nectar glands. Nectar glands are most often pronounced on species such as N. truncata, N. burbidgeae and sometimes N. rajah.
