    That looks like what happened to the truncata I recieved from JLAP after I put it out in the sun. Are you sure it isn't reddening from more light? After looking at the photo again mine looks like the big patch of red on the other leaf in the middle picture.

    I think it's tough to tell if it's a fungal infection, or a response to high light. I see photos of Nepenthes in the wild, and their leaves are often covered with orange and red spots.

    Is the plant new to your collection? Because you grow your plants outside, I'd think that the good air circulation would prevent fungal infections. I'd wait to see how the new growth responds.

    Just about all Nepenthes you get from nurseries will be infected with one or more fungal infections. They are absolutely pandemic. If plants are healthy and growing in good conditions, you will rarely see any sign of it, maybe sometimes on older leaves as they start to fade, and the fungus attacks. But when plants ail, then the fungus will often assert itself.

    In my experience, it is impossible to completely eradicate fungal infections with fungicides. The best you can hope for is to push the infection at bay long enough for the plant to regain health and fight it itself. Fungicides can often have detrimental effects of Neps (in some species spectacularly so), and they're also highly carcinogenic, so not the sorts of things you want to expose yourself to.
