Hi all. I've had this pitcher plant (as well as two Venus flytrap) I picked up from Lowes over a year and a half ago.

I've never had a problem with these or the flytraps (er, I may have about thirsted one to death - but it came through after having a talk with it).

I just put up a pseudo trellis for the PP to hopefully climb as it was getting side happy and heavy. A few months ago I noticed green growth at the base. Now it has become apparent it's a new something. The thing that gets me isnthe fuzzy looking dude coming up too. Haha.

Anyways - not sure of the specific type of plant or what or if I am correction the new green.

Thanks a bunch in advance!

Chris
My secret??? (That I haven't killed them yet!?)

(I just give them plenty of sun and distilled water and they grow --- 🤷🏽‍♂️ oh. And talk to them...)

The new growth at the base is a basal shoot, I think eventually you might be able to separate it from the rest of the plant and get another plant but I've never tried it. The plant looks like an Alata or Ventrata, but I'm not 100% sure.

It does look really good though for a year and a half under your care, good job!

To clarify this comment -
Your pitcher plant is a nepenthes; maybe Nepenthes Alata or Nepenthes Ventrata
