    Imgur is a very easy to use site as well and will provide IMG tagged links like Photobucket.

    Or Flickr; in any case, all of these sites have image links meant to be used to paste into forums etc.
    There are indeed several reasons a plant could produce discolored petioles; heat stress, nutrient imbalances, possibly even pests of one form or another.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    What are your temps, humidity and lighting conditions? Also, how long have you had that plant, and how long has it been potted in its current media? Has it been repotted recently?

    I've seen heat-stress in my own capensis, but they've never blanched white like that. Going out on a limb and thinking it might be a nutrient deficiency? Possibly phosphorous or magnesium? Looks like one of the leaves still has dew, with a new leaf that will be unfurling shortly. I would simply try giving it a good meal. :/

    I've only had it for a week or two and they came in bare root so the media's fresh. It's been coming inside and outside a lot lately because the temps have been fluctuating outside lately, it's nice and humid outside but it's probably more like 40-50% inside.

    Obviously it's just me staring at a picture, but I'm gonna second Zath that this plant is probably starving to death and needs feeding. That is not a plant someone should've sent you if it looked like that 2 weeks ago!! Unless a freebie, of course.

    Another guess would be that the original grower kept it in a much cooler/shadier/more humid environment, and so if you have put it into a brighter/warmer/less humid environment, you may be burning the old foliage but growing healthy, strong new foliage. That's why the meristem in the center is green--good sign. We want to keep the growth that way.

    the plant was perfectly healthy when it arrived. What do you suggest feeding it with? I've heard of powdered milk being used to feed sundews.
