No, it's not a new cultivar :lol: but I have a H. minor that is putting out small adult pitchers so thought I'd share a few pics.

Don't know really. It was taken from the mother plant which has full adult size pitchers. It's in different growing conditions from the mother plant, with the soil, lighting, water level and humidity being significantly different, so maybe that is influencing it. Been like this for a few months now but will have to see what happens long term.

This happens with my own plant and my friend's H.minor too. The divisions form adult pitchers which are really tiny:) Will post some photos later.

I look forward to seeing your pictures. This is the first time this has happened to me. All other divisions in the past made full adult size pitchers or reverted to juveniles.

Hey! I had the same problem, but my plant grown a energizer.

Maybe too much light? ;)
