Hi all! I took my Nepenthes ventricosa indoors earlier in the month. The summer wash harsh for it this year. I had it on top of the rain barrel, same as last year, but it just didn’t thrive as well. It got more yellow than green. I re-potted into a larger container in the spring.

Today, when cleaning up dried pitchers, I noticed a baby offshoot! My question is, how do I divide it? Should I wait until it’s a little larger? It has one pitcher growing, and only three leaves. I’m thinking of a way to house it in my larger dart frog viv to grow out a bit.

Sorry for the horrendous quality! Thanks for any tips.

I just pulled two basals off of my ventricosa. The were about 4 inches across and have rooted nicely.
