    Whats this!?!?

    Can anyone tell me what this is all about? The 2 bottom leaves just started turning yellow about a day or two ago. Now there's black smudges on this one.

    Which nep is this? I have a ventrata that when its older leaves die off, look just like this. Just because they are old, nothing wrong with them. How old are the leaves?

    This is my ventrata. I've only had it a couple weeks, but the plant is showing some nice new growth.

    The plant is most likely adapting to its new growing conditions. I usually have this happen to new Nepenthes and other cp's when I just receive them. The plant will grow new leaves that will be adapted to your growing conditions while the leaves that aren't used to your conditions will expire.

    right on.. They are all growing like weeds! They apparently loved that coffee treatment I gave them.
