    i recently got my order from cooks today , one of the plant i ordered was a small n. khasiana . one odd thing about the plant is that it the pitchers have no tendrils , the pitchers are connected directly to the leaves instead . is is this normal , possibly a mutation or possibly it might be another plant , or is this what the plant does . its a small plant ( 4 inches in diameter ) and it only has 2 pitchers which are juvenile so probably its just stress or getting used to things but i don't know for sure .

    Hello,
    I just visited his nursery today. Very nice I would say. In the front room to his tropicals, I think I saw 1 or 2 plants with no tendrils, and just pitchers, from the leaves. I wouldn't worry.

    Hmm that's odd. The only plant I am aware that "doesn't" produce any tendrils are N. mirabilis winged form and N. ampullaria which will sometimes send up basal pitchers with no viasable tendril or leaf.

    Well you must expect some leaf loss when your first get a Nepenthes from any growing climate other than your own. Give it some time and I'm sure you'll see more improvement. N. khasiana is very tough and will generally take anything that is thrown at it.

    i found that my small rafflesiana offshoot has the same problem. the parent plant is normal. i guess it all has to do with age. i see pictures of seedlings that have pitchers like that. Zongyi
