I had a beautiful Nepenthes ventricosa growing under a desk lamp at my university about 5 years ago. When I moved back to my house for the summer, I trimmed all the leaves off the plant (not just the pitchers, the leaves too) so it would be easier to transplant. I figured it was growing extremely good and would pick up again.
It rotted away within the week after doing that.
This was it right before trimming all the leaves off (and within a week it was dead)
