Nepenthes leaves
Tue, 5 Apr 94 15:27:47 EDT

Is it just my imagination or is it that my Nepenthes really do suffer when
I lop off a leaf?

On all other plants that I have dealt with, careful pruning increases the
growth or the plant and keeps it healthy.

When I cut off lower seemingly useless leaves the plant seems to dramatically
slow in growth. Is this the case or am I looking for the wrong correlation?
