    Something similar happened to my N.bicalcarata last year. I cut off the rotted leaf (which was the growing point), covered the cut with sulfur powder, and placed the plant in bright light. A few weeks later, new growing tips started growing from the upper stem and the plant is very healthy now. Nepenthes can behave like other stemmed plants--cutting them can sometimes induce the formation of lower growing tips.

    So I think you'd be better off cutting all the rotted portions and see if the plant recovers--this seems better than just sitting back and watching it rot. After you cut, you may want to apply some sufur powder (you can buy this at Lowes or garden center) or chacoal dust if you have some--these things keep the cut dry and prevent fungal infection. If not, just make sure to keep the cut dry.

    Too much of a water issue. Decrease humidity to around 55-60% and no water till soil dries out for a week, if this thing still has some green on it!
