    Is my Cephalotus drying out?

    I'm not sure what's going on. Nothing has changed, humidity has stayed relatively the same. I did turn on a new fan but the humidity monitor shows it's always around 80-95%



    I've had this plant since March of 2015

    This is what the plant looked like on June 12th 2015



    BUT, i don't i'm wrong when i say this plant looks like it's drying out. What do i do? Help please and thank you!

    Looks to me like it may be some kind of fungal problem, with the humidity that high I doubt they're drying out. I'm sure other people on here will have a better idea of what's wrong though.

    Do u spray ur plants? They dont like to be misted on their pitchers.. Atleast mine dont or they get dried out and squishy feeling like they are thin skinned.

    i cover them up when I spray the tank, i've heard that as well so I avoid getting mist on them

    Hmmm ... It could be root damage or rott - cephs have such delicate roots easy to disturb.
    Do u top water? I see alot of algea on yr sphag whic ive never expirienced it affecting the plants i have but maybe ot is a bactria or an infection like someone else said.. But i couldnt be certain if thats whats really going on. They may have gotton condensation on the pitchers and they didnt like that but hard to be sure.. I usually snip off the pitchers when they get dry looking like that to help encourage new healthy growth.. But hard to kno whats going on here. Sorry i cant be more of a help goodluck hope u figure it out
