    The pitchers on my n. fusca are starting to turn black after I started using the humidifier. What could the problem be? Should I stop using it?

    Too hot, too humid with not enough air flow. If it is just the pitchers I wouldn't worry too much but try to increase the air flow around your plants. If the leaves turn black you need to change something.

    I second srduggins' idea of too humid, too little air flow. Especially highland neps. They are not forest-dwelling like the lowlands but are often found in open places like on the cliffs, on top of tall trees etc.

    Would a computer fan help along with the humidifier?

    most definately. i think good airflow is as important as good lighting. luckily fans aren't as expensive and lighting systems lol
