    Giving it a little extra help nutritionally might do a lot of good. I'm guessing it's not catching much of anything at that small size, if it even has pitchers. I would try applying 1/4 strength orchid firtilizer every other week. That might give it the boost it needs to help overcome its issues, in addition to the recomendations made by everyone else.
    I personally would think three inches is a little close to the lights as well. Try puting it a few inches farther away (6 or more inches, perhaps).

    Edit:....Ah, it's an old resolved problem... I guess I should start reading the post dates and most recent developments in these threads... LOL. Oh well, nothing lost.

    Well today is your lucky day! I've been absent from the forum for a while, I'm a bit surprised to see this thread I started has gotten so much attention. Anyway, my N. aristolochioides seems to wax and wane, which is kinda annoying, but I know it's ultimately my fault for that. It did not like how hot it got during the time between moving into my new place and buying and AC unit.

    First, the scary part:


    I don't know why, but it did this for a while. Slowly, slowly, deteriorating until finally I was about to give up all hope on it. Suddenly! I noticed there was a basal coming up, which eventually lead to this:



    Then this:





    And now it looks like this!!





    Conditions are still the same, more or less. Day time temps are around 75*F, and at night around 65*F (Though, a few nights ago it was 54*F because it got so cold out. I was excited, but I realize that sort of instability probably isn't ideal). My ultrasonic fogger is connected to a hydrotherm, to humidity stays above 75%.

    Thanks for looking!

    Well that sucks a rather large, common North American waterfowl... Glad it made a basal though.

    I hope mine doesn't do that... I would rage.
