    I have LFS, orchid bark (with a little charcoal already thrown into it), and perlite available. I'll unpot it, rinse the roots, and repot into this mix.

    Should this be a 1:1:1 mix with the above media?

    Yeah, that ratio sounds about right.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Too wet in both the pot and on the plant. The leaf damage looks like water down in the crown as the leaves are developing. It also looks dehydrated and since it is clearly not underwatered, indicates root problems.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Adding to all of that. I read somewhere that if you fertilize too much, Nepenthes, in some cases, will stop producing pitchers due to receiving all its nutrients through the leaves and not the regular way(pitchers). So all in all, I think it might be a little bit of everything. Good luck. It looks healthy enough to pull through.
