    I'd say too much moisture and it looks like they were cooked, causing massive cell damage and loss, and then the fungus hit.

    Home Depot.
    Buy a common spray bottle and mix it with plastic measuring spoons.

    Any reason for using plastic spoons instead of metal?

    no, just have to devote the set to pesticides once you use them, and these are cheaper.

    Here's a comparison...I have a truncata that was badly infected with a fungal attack (possibly more than one), and then after treating with Orthenex. The clean leaf you see was produced immediately after treatment, showing not a trace of red spotting:




    Notice even the underside of the leaf is clean:

    So is there a good way to tell the difference between the symptoms of overwatering and the symptoms of a fungus attack? I honestly can't tell which one my Neps are suffering from.

    LLeopardGGecko,
    people also told me that nepenthes could suffer from over watering...could you tell me something more to me too,please?
    Look at the past my truncata how it was...after giving her more light and more lower temperatures the spots disappered quickly!
