    A N. talangensis grower has these mutations on his pitchers. He claims that the pitchers are fine until they reach mature size, then the mutations began. So he would take cuttings and start over.

    The (large) pictures are at:

    I think it's a TC mutation issue.

    Thanks for any help.

    Well, I certainly would be annoyed if I was a highland connoisseur and the pitchers started to look like that.
    How long did the person grow the plant before that happened?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Joe,

    I'm not sure, but I think he has been growing these for a long time. He's a friend of a friend, so I'll see if I can track his email down and ask him directly.

    Humm, thats very odd. Perhaps something is causing the pitchers to become malformed that is climate related? Perhaps his humidity drops frequently or temperature isn't cold enough at night

    looks like what happens to ampularia if there is low humidity and not enough heat. Maybe something like that but reverse, not enough chilling (freaking HL'ers). Perhaps there are wild fluctuations that they're not aware of, or can not consistantly monitor.

    No, he is growing this mutated plant with his other highlands -- N. hamata, another N. talanensis, N. aristolochioides and a bunch Heliamphora plants. No other plants have any mutations.
