    I've never had a bad experience with neem oil. Except for one time that I didnt shake up the mix properly and one of my maxima leaves got burned, cause I think the oil was too concentrated. Other than that the stuff it great.
    cheers,

    Yeah it should be fine to put it on your Nepenthes especially if they are larger than 2 inches across. Just to be safe I would try the bag method and the neem.

    Neem oil affects or suppresses cellular growth. That's where it gets its anti-fungal properties. And that's why it is often not recommended for use on seedlings or younger plants.
