    looks fine. the reddish hue on the leaf means your giving it great lighting. Good Job!

    I would cut off those nasty dead leaves (only the ones that are mostly dead). That will definitely improve the look of your plant.

    Yeah, just for good measure, I'll say it's lookin alright too- I've managed to bring worse looking ones around so really she should be okay (wel, likely "He"?? Is "Judith Finn" a male clone?? Never thought to wonder about that)

    Well, I call it "she", 'cause ya know... JUDITH FINN.


    So, a reddish leaf confers good lighting? Good. I'm finally doing something right. :thumbsup:

    Yeah, I'll hack those dead leaves off soon. She'd look naked with no leaves on. hehe...


    Say, how can you tell if those little brown "hooks" on the end of the leaves are actually gonna transform into a pitcher? And does every leaf pitcher? Or is it a hit-and-miss kind of thing? I suppose it's up to the variety of Nep 'huh?

    Usually, after a new Nepenthes is purchased, any old leaves, except for maybe the newest of the old leaves, won't make a pitcher. Yes, all leaves can make a pitcher, if conditions are favorable. Personally, I'd leave it alone, and not cut the leaves off, or at least just cut the brown parts off. I wouldn't cut any green off so as to let the plant photosynthesize as much as it can.

    Fryster, yours is doing the exact same thing mine did when I purchased it from lowes. But yours looks likes it going to bounce back and be just fine.

    Here is few before and after.

    The day after removing from cube of death. I really was thinking this was history.



    What it looks like tonight and also it looks like I might have two plants in the pot.



    And look a here I'm getting my first pitcher

    They will start turning green and swell up.

    Chris,

    Looks you and I are in the same boat with our sickly Finns.

    Yeah, I'll leave as much green on her as I can, to do the 'photosynthesize thing'.

    It's sad to see her ill but kinda fun to watch her rebound and grow again.

    I guess that's why we all like plants 'eh?
