    Unless the plant is clearly dead/declining, it is difficult to tell based on a picture alone. A thorough description of your conditions is necessary if you want people to diagnose if a plant will survive or not. However, that growth tip is rotting, which is a bad sign. Based on that alone, I'm going to lean to the "no" side, although some quick action might save it. You might want to start by removing the dead tissue, increasing air flow, and not keeping the plant sopping wet.

    From my understanding on a different forum, you've had this plant (not a recommended choice for someone who has never grown Nepenthes before) for quite some time now (~1.5 months), and it doesn't appear that it has done anything at all except rot at the growth point. What have you been doing to it? Always, ALWAYS research to make sure that you can properly grow a plant before acquiring it.

    I'll second everything SerMuncher has said, especially that we need to know your conditions and that it doesn't look good. Furthermore, assuming this is the one from BE, I'll say that it's been one of the more finicky species I've owned in my (admittedly limited) experience.

    I must ask though, why is there what looks like a perfectly good leaf (11 o'clock) buried under the sphagnum?

    That plant is in serious trouble, but the question is WHY?

    It has been revealed to me in a private communication that this plant has been placed in a refrigerator at night and exposed to temperatures into the forties - probably many times. Its no surprise that this plant is failing. There's not likely anything to be done now.

    Yeah it looks like heat damage to me, cold doesn't do that to sphagnum, was the plant enclosed is some kind of clear plastic box or bag?
