    Probably under very high light levels. Also, seems to be with rossetted plants (from what I've seen and had) that the leaves are always smaller for a few months. Could be those are older leaves that were under stressful conditions like low humidity or burning light levels.

    When the light levels are good, some neps can actually show a 1:1 pitcher- length,leaf- length ratio. You see it on a lot or pics of neps in the wild, even on more mature plants.

    Cheers,

    P.B.
    The Peter de Amato cutting's were relatively expensive (over 100) but I may get one yet!
    Joe, Nep Gracilis, and Griff, are right on. The way I understand it from my own experience, the leaves are for collecting light for photosynthesis. The more light you have, the less leaf you need to get the necessary amount of photosynthesis. You can try this by moving one of your plants very close to your light source. You will get the same effect...at least with hamata.

    I dont suggest doing that with all neps though, as some don't appreciate high light levels, and may stop growing all together.

    Wow that is rediculously expensive for one of those briggsianas(sp?) isn`t it? Especialy when its just a cutting that may not sprout. And this is a very vigorous hybrid from what I hear. So why does he want so much for it?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    It's most likely a well-rooted cutting with pitchers. People call them cuttings even after they are rooted to distinguish them from seed-grown plants.
