    Beware the D. scorpioides , they need a lot of light and heat which equal to VFT. Otherwise they should be game over!

    I also have this problem, my nepenthes are growing really good but my utrics only slowly die, my Sun Pitchers don't have a nectar spoon even though previous pitchers did and my vft's are almost completely green. I have a florescent growlight on top and an incandecent 75 watt lamp bulb on the side. I even covered most of the tank with aluminum foil. Is the problem the light, or somthing else?

    for VFT and pygmy and some special CPs which need a lot of light.
    I suggest you use HQI metal halide lamp.
    I use it for my reef tank.
    The light is near the sunshine.
    Beware the humidity and heat for the tank when used.
    Recently , some people used T5HO lamp for the reef tank, it's working and which produce less heat than HQI lamp. Try to search a data by yourself.
    But for me , I would like to use HQI. Because some CPs must need light and heat together.
    data for ref.:
