I want to buy a baby Nepenthes and have to choose one. All germinated by the exact same light, temperature, moisture and water conditions. Some of them have three leafs/pitchers, and some have four..and some shows slightly different pitcher sizes.
My question is : Did you guys detected an observable growht "pattern" or specific attributes since your plant early stages, that keeps mantaining and lasting when the plant reachs maturity? (for example, big leafs or small leafs (or pitchers), more leafs and less pitchers, or more pitchers and less leafs <-(don't know if it's possible for them to grow just a leaf with no pitcher, anyway)
Like (another example) that baby nepenthes who had good and fast leaf proliferation (in good and stable conditions) since being seedling, keeps the same attribute today?
I found some coincidences with other plant species which I germinated. My pumpkins, for example, one of them seems to be more tiny and prone to dehydration than others...now, that same plant keeps showing the same behaviour.
