    my heliamphora i just discovered that the base of the plant looks brown! i think its fungus or something thats trying to rot the bottom. i think its due to the terrarium had no air circulation and is closed on the top. what should i do to help it . spray it ? I have some dilluted ortho's daconil.

    O that's not good. You can try the daconil.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Well it had multiple growth points so maybe if you caught it early it is only partly affected and will come back. Let me know how it turns out. Perhaps it was too wet or potted too deep? If it doesn't make it I can send another but it won't be quite as big.

    here is a picture. i think it wasnt to deep or to wet though the wet could be possible. i looked at it under bright lights and it looks like it started rotting or fungi and then these mite things are getting at it.
