    Globosa needs help

    Hi Everybody,

    I traded for a N. Globosa about 7cm across. It's leaves are turning brown only on the edges and the new leaves of the plant are pale. Currently I keep it in my lowland terrarium where the humidity is above 90%. I keep the plant in a bit of water. The temps in the terrarium are good enough for my N. Bicalcarata, as it's over a foot across. I don't know what to do, is N. Globosa highland ?? Should I mist it? Thanks for your help

    Keep it in lowland conditions. Mine did the same thing, but worse and is now coming back.

    So should I keep it in a tray of water, or just wait it out? Should I water it overhead often instead? Thanks

    Don't put it in a tray. Just threat it like any other nepenthes. I'm not an expert lmao, this is just what I was doing. 2 or 3 of the leaves dried up pretty fast and the growth point was almost snapped off when it arrived, but now it's slowly making it's new (damaged) leaf. I suspect that after this hump and it gets settled in it will take off.

    Heres some advice I sent to someone else earlier:

    Keep humidity constantly extremely high, it seems to need it in order to make good sized pitchers
    Keep the temperature really high...like low 90s.
    It does well in medium to extremely bright light, but seems to prefer a pretty bright light, and the leaves should go really red.
    I'd stay away from LFS in the mix. I use cedar mulch/peat/perlite/vermiculite. I wouldn't say this species likes sitting in water, but it needs to be consistently pretty wet.

    Hmm...thats pretty much all the areas I can think of right now
    I find it to be a pretty easy plant. Good luck with it!

    If you follow those guidelines, the thing should take off and be fine. Mine has 6 growing points :P
