    I'm not sure but it looks similar of how my original Bellii start looking before the end

    After go over and over on what happend with the plant, I have come to the point when I think the humidity level and photoperiod was the main factors on the decay of health on my plant... any other nepenthes that I own, has come to a more stable conditions and no one has show any shock.

    Wich are the current conditions on your thank?

    oohhh, almost foget!

    This is how the pitchers look on my Ampullaria:

    I'd like to mention that I think bellii needs to be grossly overpotted. It has a pretty extensive root system IMO in regards to its size, and other neps.

    Here is my N. bellii as it sits right now... Maybe I should try the over potting thing Also a picture of my recently aquired N. amp spotted.... I guess it is still trying to fit into the greenhouse.

    Not sure but I think is due the Carotenoids on the nepenthes, this natural organic pigments are located in chromoplast and help to filter the blue spectrum of light and increase the efficiency of chlorophyll.

    The molecular estructure of this pigments (a covalent bond of carbon-carbon) act absorbing the espectrum of light, if more frequencies of light are absorbed from the short end of the visible spectrum which is the violet (380-450 nm on the wavelength), the compounds acquire a more saturated red appearance.
