I was at my local Pike Nursery and saw that in the Christmas section they randomly had enormous nepenthes for the very first time. Naturally, I bought it as an early Christmas present to myself.
It was potted in some weird, furry, gunky peat moss that had the consistently of a brownie, so I rinsed it off in the sink, only to find that the roots were basically in a plug of soil bound by a roll of some weird paper. After removing all of it and rinsing it off, I saw that the root system was pretty tiny.
I know pitcher loss is pretty normal, as my other nepenthes are losing their pitchers now that it's getting colder even indoors, but I was wondering if the small root system but huge leaves would have a negative impact on the plant? Did I accidentally break off the roots?
