New growth points

by SFLguy » Tue May 06, 2014 9:07 pm

Hey all, so I wanted to know if pitchers from new growth points start out at the same size as the rest of the plant or if they start out growing as much smaller plants, thanks I'm advance! :)

Typically much smaller(though bigger than a seedling) but they grow in size pretty quickly.

It also depends where on the rhizome it is. I've had growing point essentially split and the pitchers were the same size. But new growing points on parts of the rhizome that didn't previously have a growing point tend to be smaller.

Thanks, and how long do you think it will take for that growth point to pick up in speed?

Hard to say. But if it's small you'll see an increase in size with each new pitcher and then an explosion after dormancy.
