    There could be some mite damage there, though it's difficult to see from the photos . . .

    what is the media , seems to be a little dark, maybe some live sphag. top dressing would help, and give us here a few of your grow conditions, so the members can make a more suggestions, i was told to keep my seedling hamatas and young hamatas in very high humidity, but if your having mildew on the surface i dont know what to do about that,keep checking back here, there will be someone with more advise soon, this is the place to find the answers.

    High seventies to mid sixties and no less than 60 percent humidity up to 95. It is usually about 85 though. light 14 hours a day. It was perfectly normal when I left a week ago and my neighbor took care of it, so I'm not sure what she did with it but I told her exactly the same thing I do. I usually water 2 to 3 times a week. And if the compost looks at all dry I will water it. The leaf damage I'm not sure its been there for a couple months and was only on 2 leaves and no other leaves or plants which are about an inch away from it.

    Are you giving it a nightly temp drop to below 60F? Many ultrahighlanders are picky about this; some die if they don't get it.

    For what it's worth, my hamata went through a phase where it looked exactly like that. In my case it was because I removed the sphagnum it was topdressed with and I moved the growlights too close. Both of these drastically reduced the overall humidity, and the temps got warmer then what it was accustomed to. That initially occured about 3 months ago and it still hasn't put a single pitcher and is recovering very, very slowly, but recovering nonetheless. I moved the lights back to their original distance and I put sphagnum around the pot to buffer the humidity again.

    It looks alot like mite damage to me, but it could also be.....

    Lack of airlow allowing water so sit on the leaves too long, or....

    Sunburn of overheating.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
