    When I looked at the top of the picture at first, I thought there was a rock wall in the background. Nice plants!

    Close-up of the latest pitcher on Nepenthes hamata. Sorry for the poor quality.



    Nepenthes peltata from that notorious MA nursery.

    It's an osmocote pellet. I usually put a couple in a pot (of Nepenthes) to give them an extra boost.

    Osmocote pellets. Because they are transparent, I can tell they are old and have emptied their contents. It's probably also why that pot is somewhat greenish looking.

    In the right amount it's not harmful and I use a very slow release 9-month formula on my mature Neps once a year.

    Nepenthes inermis with N. hamata


    My terrarium- from left to right: Back row: A very sickly N. ampullaria, N. clipeata clone U, N. clipeata clone 2, Cephalotus follicularis. Front row: N. tobaica seedlings (supposedly), Drosera x tokaiensis(probably). Wow, I need to clean the glass.


    Still too small for an ID, although feel free to guess. The seedlings from above.

    Any idea as to what's wrong with the ampullaria? I have tried every bit of advice I could find, but it keeps developing the brown patches.

    If by brown patches, you mean those visible on the leaves in the last pic? Those look like old leaves dying off to me, how long have you had the plant? It can take some time for any plant to adjust to conditions.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
