    Whats wrong with this pitcher?

    So i got this pither labelled as an N.atlanta, although i think its a N.rafflesiana. Turns out they put two plants in there, so i seperated them and put one in a whip scorpion terrarium. The one in the terrarium is doing great, still no pitchers but its green and healthy looking. Although the one on the shelf is getting brown round the edges and such. I was thinking of putting it in the terrarium, but is it like this due to room conditions or is it some diesese that could harm the other one?

    you sure it wasn't a nep alata? Looks like it could use more humidity to me.

    also i'd throw a little fert at it as well...1/8 strength non urea based fert should do the deed

    Thanks for the fast reply, it was labeled as N.atlanta but they never seem to label them right over there. All i know is one time i got one from there it turned out to be N.rafflesiana. This plant hasnt had any pitchers for months, but the old ones had spines up down the length of it.

    I need to read up more on my pitchers, thanks for the fertilising tip, so far all i've been doing is watering them :/

    Fert helps kinda jump start them. No traps do they can't do if themselves. And non urea because there is no soil to turn the urea into nitrogen. Plus can be harsh to roots. I agree with Mass. Humidity shock. Might cone around but if you can increase humidity.
