I have this Nepenthes ventricosa that I recieved in a trade that got scorched outside in a fishtank that reached 115F for three days while I was away on vacation a few months back. It bounced back with nice new leaves (that look healthy) but the stem looks like a brown and battered stick. I am concerned that the plant is running on empty and about to give up the ghost but I'm not sure. The stem looks so dead compared to the leaves and I haven't seen this before. The Nepenthes that I have grown have always kept green stems... The larger images help I just didn't want to kill everyone with giant files.
Can anyone give me there imput?
Thanks a bunch,
