I've recently acquired two new plants, an N. ventricosa and an N. sanguinea. They are growing in my bathroom right above the shower. They seem to be doing well, but, being a newbie Nepenthes grower, I'm not a very good judge of that. They seem to be displaying some unexpected characteristics, and I'm sure you guys can tell me if these are bad signs.
My N. sanguinea is developing a new pitcher (good sign), but one of the leaves is turning a reddish brown:
Is this a bad sign or is it just getting a tan? The other leaves are a solid green.
My N. ventricosa has a lot of dead leaves around its stem:
I assume this is normal since it was shipped to me less than a month ago, but I'd like to know for sure. It also seems to be developing a new pitcher.
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
