I have two Nepenthe Miranda's . I recently purchased them at a plant show. They were in pretty bad shape. All of the pods were damaged and incapable of holding water. Some were starting to brown. None of them have the top leaves over the pods. The soil was very dry.
I hung the plants out on my sophet edge from my roof. I placed rain water in the pots just enough to make the soil moist and place water in the pods that could hold a little, none of the pods were really any good. However a couple could hold a teaspoon or two of water.
I have not yet given my plants any bugs yet.
Within a couple of days of good soil conditions and good light levels. The plant has start to grow like mad. New growths are coming out like mad. When I bought the largest leaves were around 10".
Now here is the issue, there is a red tint on some of the leaves, is the red tint a sign of something? say to much light or water, not enough or is it natural and I should not worry about it. It does not cover the whole leaf but seem to exist at the center.
I realize this red is the same color as the pods but I got have some peace of mind as these leaves haven't grown their pods yet.
