It’s a boy!

Well, there was a 70% chance that it would be, but it’s interesting to know for sure…

Yes, the first flowers on my monkey cup have finally opened and revealed themselves to be male. Only having one plant I knew I would never be able to have babies, but the flowers are interesting to see.

I noticed this morning that one of the best places to see this plant from is in the shower, so I climbed back in the shower once it was dry and you can see how many lovely new leaves are appearing.

It’s currently not forming new pitchers, but hopefully we’ll have lots more later in the year once the flower is done.

  2. It’s not exactly pretty, as such, but it is very interesting in form; the flower you end up with is not what you’d expect from the bud. Could you arrange for a girlfriend for him so that they can start playing Happy Families…?

  5. Am I right in thinking that the pitchers and the flowers are separate? The pitchers are modified leaves, not part of the flower?
