    It at first wasnt getting to much light but after it started to wilt i moved it directly under a flourescence bulb. Just a typical plant and aquarium bulb. It is sitting 6 inches from it now and has plently of light but i dont think that is the case. this wilting though is really bad the plant leaves folded up and look wierd looking i will post a picture. I think it is SDNS. Sudden death Nepenthes syndrome actually i made that up.

    From looking at the pic, are you using the water tray method?

    Could be an infection of some kind.....I had scale do that to one of my neps - a quick zap with bug spray fixed it. Have you checked it for pests?
