    Tip browning problem

    My Sarrs and Cephs have a leaf tip browning problem. Conditions are 50%-70% humidity, 75-85 degrees, 50/50 peat perlite, RO @ 5ppm, plenty of air circulation. Here are the pics. Also note the center rib of the Cephs pitchers as well as the tios of the non-carnivorous leaves.
    Suggestions?

    My plants outside in full sun do this and sometimes even before the pitchers even open. I am not sure what causes it. What kind of water do you use? I knwo with orchids you can get leaf tip burn by fertilizing too much. I am thinking it might be because of my water. So just curious as to what you use.

    RO that my TDS tester shows at 5 PPM. It really does remind me of fert burn, but they've never been fertilized (and I'm not using Miracle Grow peat or perlite. Bulk bags of each from Home Depot). Shoot, I haven't even feed them insects.

    Possibly not enough light?
