    The plants grows well, but I think they are fungi. New leaves stay green for a while, but after a week.....





    Is there anything I can do to erase those things from my love?

    Looks more like they are burning from light levels to me...

    I don't know about that Travis. THat looks like a fungi due to the porous look of the leaf surface where it is infected. I would spray with Cleary's 3336WP

    I was/am just going off what my plants look like within a week of me moving them outside after being in all winter. Some of the leaves fry a bit, others fry hard and all that get fried get that "porous" look.

    Travis, I moved them outside, it's true. But they were like that also before I moved them. the older leaves were all produced inside my tank...

    Federico,
    I don't know i which way you did move the Nepenthes from the terrarium to outside.
    You live in Rome and there the sun is already stronger than here in Milan.
    I also already put to outside all my plants without having problems.I just kept open the terrarium to give less humidity and then, as the weather was bad and rainy...I put them outside in MORNIG SUN ( just 2 hours x day ).
    Anyway..if this is not sun damage I thing also it is a fungi ( I don't thing RUST SPOTS....anyone can help to identify?).
    If it is fungi just try with a BAYERS product called PROVADO PLUS. It should work fine.
    Keep us informed.

    I'd put money on it being a fungal infection, colletotrichum, mycospaerella and cercospora are common leaf spot infections in Nepenthes. Clearys 336 (thiophanate methyl) is good, but use it carefully as it will retard growth and is highly toxic to humans - don't get it on your skin or breathe any in.
