    well quite obviously moving it to your bedroom caused it a lot of stress. i'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but if the growing point is turning brown your plant is probably already shot, thats just the way nepenthenes are.

    keep an eye on it. pray. and if all else fails, chop it up and try and get some cuttings to throw down roots.
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    honestly, when i heard you got N. aristo a while a go i didnt think you could care for it.... N. aristo can be an uber picky plant. likes high humidity and cool temperatures. elgecko is the only person i know that has had success with N. aristo on a windowsil....but he has a magic window

    making cuttings may be your best bet but N. aristo cuttings are notorious for being slow and difficult to root.

    Good Luck!

    From what I've read, it seems like the problems seem to arise when people try and drastically change their plant's conditions, even though it was growing fine. If a plant is growing well, don't move it. I've made this mistake as well. This may be one of the reasons why elgecko's windowsill works so well.

    I think this sounds like root rot.
    Nepenthesmatt don't let this get you down! I have lost two Neps like this, but I can still windowsill grow! Nepenthes have been proven to be able to pull through a lot. Aristo is hard though. Nepenthesfreak is growing Aristo on a wndswl, I'll update on how it goes for him, or mabye I'll get him to join the forum.
    Did you use the bag method? That can save plants lives! Here: http://pitcherplants.proboards34.com...0314311&page=1
