My nepenthes ventricosa x mira has lost two of the four traps it had when it shipped in but the leaves are still living, kinda growing, and are healthy. But I am wondering how long they will last.
Although one is a small insignificant leaf the other is the largest in the plant so if it died before the next leaf fully developed the plant would be devastated and growth would be stunted due to its small size.
I am just hoping to know as the pitcher died about nine days ago and I am relying on those two leaves staying alive at least another two weeks. I am sure the pitchers died from shipping as they had no fluid In them and being a small plant I couldn't refill them easily.
