    it might be interesting to send some cuttings to other growers and see if pitchers subsequently produced are similarly distorted. [/QUOTE]

    Cool Looking Amp pitcher.
    How about N. Ampullaria "Caves"

    Kinda reminds me of stalagtites and stalagmites....

    Actually, in all seriousness, no. I have plenty of plants. It's just an idea, and since N. ampullaria is a pretty easy species to cultivate, and not as slow-growing as some, it would seem a good candidate for such experimentation.

    If it's not environmental, I would call it N. ampullaria "Monstrous Maw", as it looks like a pointy-teethed mouth.
    Trapping capabilities would be more limited, and I thought about N. ampullaria "Anarexic", but that is poor taste. I have poor taste, but the rest of the free world doesn't.

    Regards,

    Joe

    Jeff,

    I shall take some cuttings from it soon and firstly see what happens to the cuttings before sending any out. It is about 2 feet tall with 8 pitchers like the one shown. Jeff may be right about the environmental conditions having triggered the mutation, but it shows no sign of growing out yet. It's on a bench with a lot of other N. ampullarias which are normal.

    Basals are just breaking, so we'll see what happens there. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Rob, if the plant is sitting right along w/ the other N.amp. and they are all ok. how could it be enviroment condtions if it is getting the same conditions as the rest.

    might just be that something in it geans are cousing it to grow that way and it was just a flaw that happened when pollenated

    Hey Borneo

    It looks like it developed to trap mini vampire bats!

    Tim,

    the only problem with that is that the Dracula vampira's bite for blood and if i am correct the N.amp. is known to be vegatarian.
