Hi,
I was moving my nepenthes to change the water and I accidentally broke the top side of a leaf! I am not pretty sure about it but I heard a crack sound and it moves easier than other traps (first time that I touch them). Did I break it? Is there a way to fix it? Thanks. I'll post some pics!ImageImage

No, it's the top of the trap...

If you heard a cracking noise you most likely broke something. If it is the lid of the trap then I would leave it, but if it is the vine/tendril between the leaf and pitcher, which usually breaks at the base of the pitcher, I would just cut the pitcher off.
