    60 at night is definitely not too cold. mine is taking it into the low 40s in the garage with no problem, this IS A HIGHLAND SPECIES.
    Your problem does appear to be a fungal infection accompanied probably with poor air to the roots.
    I would repot it into a more airy mix such as LFS/orchid barck/perlite/peat or something with god large chunks of material in the media. and your plant also looks like its possibly got mites or something along those lines...monitor it carefully.

    Speaking of which, I've heard that coconut husk is excellent for highland neps. (same with orchid bark, which you probably have handy).

    you can get a plant with mites ..... an not know you have them for quite some time . I got a Ventricosa from a vendor an it took 6 months before i noticed i had mites it was over a year after i got the last plant the ventricosa ...... sorry the vent was the last plant i got ... then a year later got another so i know exactlly where the mites came from .....

    Here is my young N. gymnamphora, had it for a month and a half now maybe, not 100% sure
    but it came from a place about 30 minutes from me so there isnt much of a temperature change lol. only lighting.
    the plant has already started to grow very nicely, the two completed pitchers on it were what it came with, and its condition looks a little rough but its nice and healthy.....gonna open a new pitcher in a week-ish and has another one on the way....

    This is also my first time using net baskets on smaller neps, thought id give it a try since my 2 large sangs in a 10" net basket seem to love it...

    I'd recommend checking for mites too. When I got back home after about 2 years away I found out my neps had mites. Poor things probably had them for the whole time I was gone, or close to that long. Are there spots of red on all the leaves or just that along the edge of the leaves?

    just the edge of the older leaves they seem to do this as they age and die off , SirKristoff your gymn. seems to have spots on the reddish side, also along the edge of a couple leaves and some more serious darker red spots on some of the older leaves, does it have a fungal infection as well.
    Mine looked quits similar to this when I got it , nice plant good pitchering compared to mine. Im repotting when i get home what would use to kill the mites , if their there? systemics , oils, soaps ?

    hey jimmy - no my plant doesn't have fungal issues lol. the old leaves were damaged by a cold snap at the previous owners house and the plant is also recovering from an aphid attack he had there a few months ago.
    Washington state @_@ cold and horrible horrible bugs. a bit of reddish spots and discoloration is common and doesn't always signal a fungal infection or insect infestation....
