    Nepenthes Flowering

    Hi. Ive been having this pitcher plant for a year already. Started off small now it has grown this. I had a few questions regarding the middle long one from flowering. Should i let it flower? Can i still make cuttings after it flowers? I am going to orchard supply to get some new pots and spa moss for the ones hanging. First picture was when it was small.

    It doesn't seem like there are any pictures attached but as for your question, flowering is not harmful to nepenthes. Go ahead and let if flower if you want to see what the blooms are like. The vine will continue to grow after flowering so you can take cuttings, but cuttings of just the flower won't work.

    Yeah, you plant is just fine but it does seem to be a ventrata, which is a female plant for the clone that's commonly sold. It's also sterile so even if you do get pollen for it any seed produced will be infertile.
