Last month, I thought I was going to lose my Mystery Nepenthes because the main stem and new growth nodes were dying off. To save it, I trimmed them off and kept some of the main stem that wasn't affected. I also noticed while doing this a basal offshoot was growing. After buying a better quality grow light for my plants and their overall health, the basal offshoot has grown rapidly and is even producing a pitcher! It's still not yet done growing, but can my mystery nepenthes be identified with the growing pitcher and even with one leaf that has spiked hairs on the edges?
I knew after a while that this wasn't a Ventrata. After rescuing it at my local Lowes, it had struggled to grow and do anything unlike my first Ventrata, and the pitcher looks hairy on the front than what a usual Ventrata pitcher would look like, and it's not growing from a long stem. I'm pretty sure I might have a lowland specie, but who knows at this point lol.
Thanks for reading this and for any tips on what it could be! When the pitcher is done growing I'll post an update pic of it!
