Is this Odd ? (continued)


Recommended Posts

Further to my previous post my Nep has put out a third new growth point eminating from somewhere down near the basal crown, except it has come through the moss/perlite medium with a fully formed but not yet opened miniature pitcher!




I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if there is an explanation ?

its a basal shoot

  its common and expected from most neps

you can leave it alone

 OR remove it & root it

OR trim back your mainstem to create cuttings & the Basal should get bigger rapidly


it can be the result of stress to the main stem (if the stem is bending under the weight of its self, the plant produces a basal as insurance if the main stem snaps)


OR the result of a tissue cultured plant (growth hormones in TC help to produce many growth points)
