Yesterday I was repotting my N. rafflesiana gigantea(?) and when I took it out of the pot I notice a very very long single root that meassured over 1 feet! (3 times the length of the plant). It freaked me out! I didn't know it had such a long root. This reminded me of that time I repotted my n. khasiana when I noticed that there was a basal shoot living under the soil which only had 2 pitchers very different from the ones khasiana has: they were short and fat with wings and purple/pink coloration. Days after the repotting the basal shoot and the pitchers died out...as if they were sensitive to sunlight...weird huh?
