I've never read anything concerning the following question...but hopefully someone can give some input...
Regarding light and pitcher development/coloration: *Is it the light that the rosette (main portion of the plant) is exposed to that has the predominating effect on a pitcher's development/coloration, or rather the amount of light that the actual developing tendril/pitcher is exposed to?
For example, if the plant itself is growing in the presence of high, sufficient light levels, but one of its newly produced leaves extends into a shaded area (perhaps under the shade produced by a neighboring plant) would the pitcher that forms at the end of this shaded leaf develop just as well as it would if it (the developing tendril itself) were exposed to the same high light levels that the main portion of the plant is exposed to?
I tried to make this sound as clear and concise as I could...any replies would be greatly appreciated. *
