    I have some yellow spots on my N.reinwardtiana leaf.
    I read something about that it could be lack of nutritients?
    I can maybe send a picture later.
    Can someone help me and tell me whats wrong?
    Need all the experience I can get...

    Do you grow inside or out? My outdoor grown N. Merrilliana is developing bright pink/red spots on it's dark green leaves leaves, so I'm eager to read the answers to your question

    It may be a lack of nutrients, though proper feeding would preclude that. What/how often are you feeding it?

    It may also be high lighting (leaves closest to the light should be most colored). If so, it's not a problem.

    It may be disease-related (check undersides of leaves for spider mites and other critters). Viral/fungal infections may cause leaf spotting as well.

    It may be the beginning of natural leaf death (usually bottom leaves gradually yellow as they get older).

    If it's in a terrarium, humidity is probably not a factor.

    Hope this helps. Send us a pic if you have one.

    Here are a couple of pics of my N. Merrilliana. Also note how small the new leaves are, but are still producing pitchers.

    It could be that they are acclamatizing to the new light levels.
    Some of my plants also growed smaller leaves when I increased the lights.
