    Like clue says, usually when you have that brownish looking stuff under the leaf it's a sign of pests. I just got done treating all my plants for something similar earlier this month. In my case it was thrips + some kind of mite but I'm not seeing the little dark dots or silvery damage associated with thrips so it's possibly a mite problem.

    I would contact the guy if possible and ask if he treated the plant recently with a systemic insecticide. Otherwise a treatment or even a follow up treatment (if he already did) could be helpful.

    By the way, that first plant has really cool pitchers. Nice find.

    The brown under the leaf looks alot like Thrips damage to me.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Looks OK to me,
    Maybe watering/Light issue?
    I could be wrong though I lost some HL neps to high heat last summer.

    A good test for spider mites is to soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and swipe it on the underside of the leaf. If you get little red dots on the cotton ball, continue until you have swiped all surfaces as much as possible. Repeat every few days until the spider mites are gone. I have only had one spider mite infestation on rooted cutting I received and I was able to get rid of it that way. Unfortunately it killed a few of my other cuttings before I realized what was going on. I don't have too many bug infestations since mine are not exposed to outside elements other than new material coming in.

    The second plant looks like it has veitchii in it.

    EDIT: I should mention I am not an expert. There is probably a better way to deal with spider mites if you happen to have them. And the fact I said there it looks like veitchii means there is probably zero chance it has veitchii in it.

    Nope, thrips seem to attack older leaves first.
