    Normal acclimation?

    My Nepenthes Ventricosa seem to be having a hard time acclimating. Is there anything I can do/should do in order to make their acclimation faster and easier for the plant? I do have, I think, three new leaves coming up. I just thought I would post to see what you guys think. This is my first time growing Nepenthes.


    Conditions:
    Under a tree (some direct sun for part of the day)
    Day temp: average around 90 F
    Night temp: avg in the 60's F
    I water whenever the soil looks or feels on the dry side.
    Humidity is usually 50%-60%
    I use distilled water.
    I spray them whenever I remember to try to keep the humidity up.
    I live in Hollister, CA. One hour from San Jose.

    Oh, and after doing some research on here, I put three pellets of Osmocote into the soil
    of each pot.

    I was wondering if too much sun could cause this...

    Any input is greatly appreciated.
    Also, if I forgot anything, just let me know what info you need.

    The best thing you could do is just let it be. Neps are notorious for reacting to a significant change in conditions and staying upset for weeks. As long as it isn't dying, it is just adjusting. Give it time.

    Too much sun too fast. Oh and take out the Osmocote. Fertilize either with something organic (seaweed/fish emulsion), or an orchid fert. PM me for instructions if you choose the latter.
