Hi all!
My friend sent me this picture and I have never seen anything like it! I was hoping the more experienced growers on here could tell me if they have ever seen this sort of thing before.

This pitcher (just this one) of a Hurricane Creek Leuco (don't know which clone) developed without a lid. It did not have one to start and lost it, it never had one. If you look at the above angle photo it looks like a mirror image of the other side. The only other plant that I have heard of that has a reduced lid id "Bris".

If anyone has seen this before please let me know so I can pas son the info.

Thanks!

There are a lot of Sarracenia clones that produce stunted lids as a standard appearance, just not registered as cultivars. A one-off pitcher like this is likely just a hormonal fluke.

Agreed, you'll see lots of one-offs but that one is pretty cool!

You'll especially tend to see incorrectly developed pitchers as your plants are shifting to/away from making phyllodia.
