    Problem with my black dragon

    I noticed some red spots on my black dragon. But then one of my pitchers is starting to shrivel and die. I took some pics with my phone so they are not that good but you can see the problem. One of the leaves is starting to get a big black spot too. But I have 2 huge pitchers, one that is just starting to form, and another not so big.





    Anyways the pics are a lot better then the others I posted of the predator a long time ago.

    If those don't work here is a link to get to the page. The tiger is a tattoo I'm getting soon.

    I got the exact same problem with a N.reinwardtiana that I had.
    I never figured out what it was and it died about 2-3 weeks after.
    I thought it was some kind of fungus so I treated it with fungicide, cut off the damaged leaves and repotted it but it still died.
    I hope someone here can help you soon or else it will probably die.

    Looks like low air circulation and exchange. Increase ventilation.

    Then open the top a little bit.

    Dustin: How do you tell the difference between a virus and a fungi and this? I figured I'd ask since his plant and an affected plant all look the same to me. Any pointers?

    I have the side open. I do have some foil covering the open side but I'm sure air can get through.

    edit: Sorry, posted in the wrong thread. I guess that's what happens when you have so many tabs open...
