    Well, is the damage cause by spider mites? The transport was abit rough because it was very very squeezy. :?

    Is this the normal colour of the pitchers? Or spider mite damage?

    The black spots look like thrips damage. Those little things are so ANNOYING! Sadly, I don't know how to get rid of them.

    If they are thrips Smyth ng with merit will kill them. I like Bayer advances rose and flower spray. Works great. If they are spider mites its a different story. You would need a miticide. And spraying the leaves too and bottom with water throughout the day helps get rid of mites too. Mites are uncommon in my experience. I've had damage like what I see on some of the leaves before and its nothing to worry about. Its not rampant and new leaves look fine. I don't find many bug on my nepenthes other than ones its feesig on. Mealy bug and scale just don't mess with them much and I have had scale.and mealy bugs in the GH before. But if you are worried there is a fungal, mite and bug control spray at Lowes. Its a three in one. Give it a dose of that and clear your mind. And grow a nep.

    Looks like a ventricosa from what I see but I'm no expert by no means.

    I agree; possibly Nepenthes x ventrata, which, of course, is the easiest Nepenthes plant to find. I'm surprised that I stumbled upon my Nepenthes fusca, and on eBay, no less!

    Ventrata doesn't generally have speckles to my knowledge. None I've seen have had them.

    I wondered about that too. I think it's actually just a Nepenthes ventricosa.
