    Here's a picture of my N. ampularia 'Green'. Does that count as an upper pitcher?

    Also mine has vine pitchers that started growing about a month ago, they are so cool. The picture only shows 2 but there are five nodes growing them.

    Yep, they're lower pitchers - see how the pitcher mouth is facing the tendril. In upper pitcher, the mouth faces away from the tendril, and the pitcher is infundibulate (funnel-shaped). The internodal distance on the climbing vine on which uppers are occasionally produced is also very large, 20+cm.

    Yummy

    Now... why won't my red amp put out basal pitchers? It's about a meter tall now.

    Thanks for all the responses!

    I was actually referring to pitchers from the leaves on the vine, not rossettes of lower pitchers from the already woody part...I have those already starting at the bottom.
    The main reason I was asking was to determine whether it was worthwile to make a cutting of the vine, as it's getting quite long, and no longer producing pitchers at the ends of its leaves. From what I remember, most vine cuttings only produce upper pitchers....But then it strikes me that maybe amps are different because the have the ability to make those lower pitcher rossettes all the way up the woody stem.
