    My nepenthes do this sometimes, it can be caused by a number of things. For me it is a lack of water, but I've also had it occur as the beginnings of sun burn or salt accumulation.

    Im not much of a Nepenthes expert, but I can tell you that more info is needed for people to give you a solution. Temperature? Humidity? etc...

    yikes... first, bag the plant immediately. It clearly needs to be adapted to your conditions.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Definately put it in a large ziplock bag to increase humidity and adust it slowly. What media are you using?

    The media is ABG mix (2 parts tree fern fiber, 1 part peat moss, 2 parts cocofiber, 1 part charcoal, and 2 parts orchid bark.)

    The temperature is around 76-78 in the day and 68 at night.

    Humidity is pretty low, but the soil is moist. I think going from winter->summer maybe had something to do with it? It has been fine since February and it just started doing this...

    Ok, I put the plant+its water tray in a 5 gallon aquarium, watered it, and then poured distilled water all around the water tray, then covered the 5 gallon with glass. If this does solve the problem, can it bounce back?

    By water tray do you mean that it's sitting in water?
