    Small Nepenthes lid problem

    Lately these 2 have been developing smaller pitcher lids and have a burnt look to them.
    What could be causing this? These are not new plants so they are not in shock and my RH is around 60%. I dont think that's too low as none of the other ones seem to mind and all are getting the same treatment.
    I placed the chaniana x veitchii in the lowland tank for an increase in RH to see if this resolves the problem but I just wanted to see if anyone had had this occur before and if they'd found the source.
    Thanks ahead of time for the help.

    in my experience, the little lid syndrome is generally caused by changes in humidity during pitcher development, usually dramatic changes though....

    Some of my Miranda pitchers do that occasionally and I don't know the cause either. They hang on my porch and are not in a controlled environment so it could be anything.

    Well the humidity was my guess as well. I just couldnt figure out why it only affected these 2 and not the others. We'll see if moving the chaniana x veitchii to the lowland tank will change anything.
