    i just got a n. tobaica from ********** that has a basal shoot that has several pitchers already. when can the basal shoot be removed? should i wait and let the plant recover from the transportation shock before i remove it or just go ahead and remove it?

    Leave them on there, let them grow.

    It won't affect the plant in any way. Just would make the plant look healthier and bushy. (I mean u can't say no to a bushy plant filled with pitchers, right)

    I would let the basal shoots grow too. I have one starting to bloom with a 2 foot climbing stem and 5 basal shoots. I like the basal pitchers better. They are bigger and darker and I like the "bush" with everything from 1/2" pitchers to 5" pitchers. I think I would remove the climbing stem before I remove any of the basals.
