    I just had this same issue with my ampullaria but I believe my problem to be heat related. During the fires and Santa Ana winds that we had here recently, the temperature in my Lowland tank skyrocketed to around 100+ degrees (while I was not around). My humidity has always been consistently high, and so I know it was not humidity related, but definitely caused by stress (heat). All the lids on my Amp closed up, and the plant got rugged looking. Anywho Nepenthes Mira seems to be a fairly easy Nep to grow, at least in my experience. Good luck and keep us posted =).

    aaah..... so how are they doing? I mean all the highlands would hate and just die at 100F. Were the lowlands fine with it? Did they get a sweat going?

    anyways..thanks. I hope the thing recovers and pitchers for me sometime. ;D

    My highlanders didn't take it as badly as I thought they would actually. I had some pitchers die off, but they all seem to be doing just fine now. The one that got hit the hardest was the ampullaria surprisingly. All my other Neps are doing just fine now. The lowlanders were sweating balls, but they all look just fine now. My VFTs don't look like they liked it so much. GL with your new baby =).

    hello, If anyone is around can you help me identify what is going on with my live spagnum moss, the tips are brown and the other areas are green.
