    The older leaves are probably just dying. It's exactly the same thing as I was telling you in the chatbox earlier regarding your vft. Old leaves die. They turn pale or yellow and die off. It happens.

    if it's not a light problem then it can be a mineral deficiency ...so give it something to eat!
    in my case it was a light issue. once i put it under natural light it colored up...i did feed it too but i think it was the light
    Best regards,

    Any chance that it looks like this? Look at how the circled leaf compares to the others. It's not as colored as the others. The leaf died a few weeks ago. Don't worry.

    Yeah, it kindof looks like that. And mark.ca, I can't feed it, it has no pitcher. But each leaf has a long-ish tentril that hooks at the end.

    Well then, looks your question might have been answered. It's just a dying leaf. Though, a pic would still help.

    Ok ill get a pic up in a few minutes, but you can't really see much in it. All you can really see is a brighter green leaf than the others.

    in general sometimes if the light is increased, leaves can become bright green in color. However, if it happened suddenly in the same conditions as the older leaves, then I might guess that there is some sort of nutrient deficiency. I would suggest feeding some of the older pitchers with a variety of bugs such as flies, wax worms, crickets, blood worms etc. Then just wait for the next leaf and act accordingly.
