    I think Kevin may have put his finger on the problem - or at least one of the problems. (Some of the foliar distortions I see in the photos may be chimaera tissue - this particular hybrid has exhibited that problem in many private collections, my own included.) But get some nutrients into the plant first....

    Menacing Pitcher from Spectabilis X Aristo



    Nepenthes Hamata - A new leaf started to uncurl today. Its been frozen for about
    a month due to chamber moving.






    Peeking behind the mutant mass, I spy a Hamata pitcher.
    Could this be the one that the prophecy foretold?

    More Brocchinia. How many can you spot??



    And for anybody wondering about those little
    sprouts that always pop up in the sphagnum, they turns into
    these things. (Ive only seen two so far. Perhaps a sedge?)






    These beastly sedges have a thick armor of rhizomeous core.
    They are not to be disturbed as they are known to eye gouge when threatened.








    Nepenthes Hamata





    Nepenthes Jamban Seedlings




    Nepenthes Spectabilis Giant Plot - Another monster sedge can be seen in the back.












    Nepenthes Ventricosa - Creepin

    Do yourself a favor and get rid of the sedges now, while there's still time!

    Ditto. They may seem innocuous now, but if any should seed, you'll have them forever.

    I particularly like this method to avoid soil disturbance:
    (1) get a sharp pair of scissors
    (2) wrap all the sedge leaves up in one hand
    (3) cut 1" beneath the plant at an angle, underneath the soil, severing all roots
    (4) don't bother pulling out the fine roots, which would disturb the soil. As long as you get the crown, the roots of many sedges (and rushes/grasses, too) won't resprout
