    Hello cindy my friend.
    Here is my media. peat : coir : charcoal : orchid bark 5:2:1:2
    Roughly are those media, and there also has something media I don't know how to spell that.(sorry about my poor english. )
    I gather the problem was not on media.
    In mine experience,perhaps he got too much shine.(try to shaded some shine.)
    N.campanulata is very cute lowland nepenthes.
    He likes growing in the place where have high and stable humidity.
    so if the humidity too low or change usually. the oldest leaf will turns black very quickly.
    Wish those can help you.

    Ducking,

    Regarding the high humidity, I don't think that's so true.

    Both mine grow quite happily in my grow chamber. My humidity fluxuates between 40 and 65%. Almost never goes above 65% (maybe at night when it cools off some).

    Oddly, my Bical is growing happily, too, which is another one that supposedly has to have really high humidity.



    Credit JMatt with this pic, from the NECPS show - this only shows the PUPS. The mother plant is off to the side of the pic, and easily 3 x the diameter of most of these pups.

    What?!!!
    So, this is now the Forum of Pandora's Nepenthes Tips(they can not be released or people will be growing great plants all over the world)?
    Do I remember you are a teacher or in the school system there? Go to the black board and write lines!



    Cheers,

    Joe

    Hello~ Schloaty, Maybe the problem is light. I think stable humidity is necessary.
    Thanks to your suggestion and exposition. Duckking appreciate. thank you.

    Joe, there is no longer blackboards in the schools here. Btw, that was some reaction!

    Anyway, he grows them in LFS and perlite which I do with mine. And he grows them under lights which I do with mine...and that he found that they suffer during summer despite being lowland plants which I also concur since I had plants died back for me during the hottest months.

    So I came to the conclusion that it is not the media afterall. But most likely that this species need cooler temperatures...more of intermediate grower than a true lowland species like N. ampullaria. Or at least a decent night drop is necessary.

    Cheers!
    Cindy
