So I've grown a few Nepenthes viking seedlings for a while and they sprouted around a month ago.Ive noticed that other than the first two leaves , they only sprout pitchers as their leaves.Ntone knows when they would go back to sprouting normal leaves so that they grow in height?

Common lowland species will typically have their leaves and pitchers fused together as small plants. It's normal and they'll grow just fine (in fact they should grow rather quickly in good conditions.)

Oh ok that's good to know thank you very much!
Do you know how long it'll take before they grow their normal looking leaves again?

That's going to take a while... Nepenthes grow really slowly. Maybe in a year or two.

It really depends on how fast they grow. It could be a month, or it could be a year.

True, the species I grew took about 3 months before they grew "traditional" leaves. Honestly it grew faster than I expected
