I made some leaf cuttings a few months ago for sale, some of them started to produce little young pitchers, while others only tiny leaves. The ones with pitchers were sold, while I kept the others virtually forgotten, as they were growing slower.
But then I got this special case that I had never seen before: a LEAF CUTTING developed into tiny leaves and then it produced an ADULT PITCHER, it is totally new for me.

Sorry for the quality, I took the pictures with my phone.


I swear it's a leaf cutting, there is no any rhizome. What do you think? Have you ever seen that before?

I have seen it frequently. My avatar is a picture of an adult pitcher on a leaf cutting that was produced after a few juvenile pitchers, but some from the same batch went straight to adult pitchers 12 mm high and larger. All the plants that did it were slower to grow than those that produced juvenile pitchers first. Some later went back to producing juvenile pitchers.

Here's on of my leaf cuttings that went straight to adult pitchers:
