    Plant nomenclature or descriptive terminology

    Another argument for accurate and correct nomenclature.

    Apparently the originator of this thread had originally intended to discuss distressed Nepenthes pitcher lids, but didn't actually say so, at least not clearly enough for everyone to understand the intended subject.

    BTW, what is a "batt"?

    I put the fan back where it was and lowered it closer to the pots...ant thoughts?

    Might be a bacterial or fungal infection (sometimes inspired by water drops remaining on foliage too long), but might just be too hot and/or too low humidity. Might also be the temperature of the water when it contacts the plant's leaves, (too warm or too cold).

    How long have you had the plants?
    Are they stable or in transition?
    Good growing, Jack

    Looks like they are adjusting to a new humidity situation due to the fan placement. I've had this same thing wipe out nearly every pitcher in my entire collection by ... yep you guessed it..just moving my fan! They are ridiculously finicky plants imo. You can move it back, but damage has been done and they may go through an 'tantrum phase'.
