    Wetting agents are usually glycerin based soaps of some sort. It should be rinsed out. It is used in smaller bags of peat moss to keep the peat moss moist. A consumer isn't likely to buy a bag of soil that is rock hard or with rock hard chunks.

    Many people use the Premier bales of peat moss that Lowe's sells. As I recall the photos of Ozzy building his bog showed the very same brand being used.

    There are many other pests that cause shriveling damage to leaves that are difficult to spot. Mites and thrips are common culprits. Take a 10x magnifier and inspect your plants. Do not confuse springtails with mites or thrips. Springtails move quickly often jumping away with aid from the lever on their tails which give them their common name. Mites have eight legs.

    Scale insects or mealy bugs are other common pests. This are easy to spot if you know what to look for. Try a Google image search.

    Use a miticide for mights and a systemic insecticide for thrips. A systemic insecticide should take care of thrips, mealy bugs and some scale insects.

    You are watering with distilled or reverse-osmosis purified water, correct? Any chance that the temperatures gone sky high (usually a closed tank exposed to direct sun or too close to lights).

    Wrong; you're jumping to conclusions. Just because some people grow them submerged doesn't mean that will work with your level of light, regional weather, or potting setup. Compare the reported "best" medias that various people use for Nepenthes; some people swear by just long-fibered Sphagnum, while for others potting their Neps up like that is a death sentence. Watering depends on media, which depends on air conditions, which depends on light, which depends on watering (and all the other combinations you could make out of those factors.) Unless your conditions are virtually identical in all respects, you shouldn't expect the same results.

    Yeah you totally can be over watering them. I highly doubt you saw people grow theirs completely submerged in water. They aren't underwater plants; hence they would die from root rot. Moist has a big difference from completely submerged.

    one the members from here had a pic thread of sveral summerged plants. And i have heard many times that sarracina oreo get placed underwater starting in june till the fall so that it can keep its pitchers throughtout the summer in hotter climates. Yes it has worked, and no it may not work for me. Anyway the plant is fine now. It was @ sarrs in one pot. No neps.....
