    help with nepenthes and identification

    New to CP cultivating here, my favourite type are the nepenthes and i bought 2 of them recently, although i dont know what species they are i am having problem with their leaves as there are some brown spot appearing in the leaves. Anyone know what is happening?
    I water them daily and put them in my rooftop(lots of sun, i live in singapore so humidity shouldnt be a problem too), not sure what is the potting mix, i just got them and have not done any repotting at all.

    the 1st plant i have for around 2 weeks, seems to be pitchering quite well
    this is the leaf top view

    this is the leaf underneath

    this is the pitcher


    the 2nd plant i have for around 1 week seems to not have a new pitcher for some time, but a new one is growing now
    this is the leaf top view

    this is the leaf underneath

    this is the pitcher


    Few posibilities i think might be the problem is root rot(to much watering?), too much sun(i just brought them home, when i bought them, they wasnt placed in fullsun) or pests/fungus? Someone help plz and what should i do?

    The coloration on the leaves looks ok to me, some leaves in my terrarium look worse.
    The plants will adapt soon enough imho.

    Hmmm I would say N. spathulata x hirsuta for the first plant. No thoughts about the 2nd one...

    Just looks like a little sunburnt to me. If they were grown in low light then moved to full sun they will look like that. The next set of leaves should adjust and have a beautiful pink/red hue.

    What I've seen as sunburn doesn't look like that; usually sunburn will only affect the top side of the leaf.

    I suggest taking a wet cotton ball or swab and run it under the underside of the leaf to check for any spider mites. To me, the damage at the underside of the leaf looks like spider mite damage.
