Colouration of ceph"
Posted 09 December 2011 - 18:47 PM
Would like to ask is there a correlation between the production of non carnivorous leaf and colouration of the plant?
For me it seems like the more colouration the plant has, the less likely it is to produce non carnivorous leaf??

it depends on the clone, some produce loads (e.g. Hummer's Giant'), some hardly ever (e.g. Julie Jones large clone), also some years are better than others...2011 was very good!
great colour btw
Thx for the reply!
It was named dark-red when I brought it.
but no clone name was given
Have to wait to find out.....

I have one seedling that survived the cold of the last two winters out in the greenhouse,it has only produce 1 non carnivorous leaf so far and is really green.

The more light, the darker the plant pitcher and the less need for the plant to produce regular leaves to absorb sunlight.

Plants produce more non-carnivorous leaves if in low light than bright light. I have kept plants in the shade for this reason, while the same clone in the light produced very few NCL that are hard to get to for use as leaf cuttings.
Of my plants in good light, almost all my small pots have dark coloured plants in them, while the large pots have lighter (red and green rather than purple) coloured plants, except the baskets, which have dark plants.
