    I'm still confused because you water every two days but you let it evaporate for 2-3 days... My guess is still rot from too much water. If you water on strict schedule (every two days) then you run a high risk of overwatering. I think the cool weather probably only accelerated the current overwatering problem because when it is cooler, the plant needs/uses less water.

    The more information you provide in the beginning will only help you get correct and accurate help. This may have been resolved twelve hours ago... Plus it negates the frustration of others attempting to give the advice you are seeking.

    And I STILL didn't get the answers to all of my VERY simple questions, but whatever.

    Humidity is fine. I have no idea what the light actually is, no idea what the media is (do you realize that media is probably the most important aspect to this plant?),but I'll assume it's fine since you got it from Travis and you haven't repotted it, no idea just how cold it is, your watering schedule (as was pointed out) makes zero sense... I give up. It's likely rot from too much moisture. It's almost always rot, but I'm not going to continue beating my head against a wall trying to get the most basic of information to help you.

    Good luck.

    edit: removed pictures since they were too blurry to see anything you were trying to show us. No need to waste server space. I left the links in case anyone wants to see them. -xvart.

    What's with the circle? Are we looking through a magnifying glass? I can't make anything out... I think I can see a non-carnivorous leaf. Your best bet is to do a leaf pulling and "attempt" to start over...

    its all blur mate
    cant help with blur >_<
    try using a macro function on the camera rather than a magnifying glass over the plant. if there is powdery white stuff on it. its the powdery mildew in conjunction with possible rootrot from overwatering. i highly recommend removing alot of that star moss. it looks like it could be choking your plant out as well.

    Or just take a normal picture from further away. You don't need an extreme close up shot and you certainly don't need a magnifying glass. We just need to see the plant, clearly, from any distance...

    Touche xvart lol.
    Yes we need a clear picture to see what the true issue is. from the blue i see a very choked out plant from star moss that is waterlogged in a small pot and probably not mounded causing crown rot and various other issues. who knows?
