    What is wrong with my Nepenthes' leaf?

    I noticed a tear or some sort of blemish on my Nepenthes Ventricosa's leaf. This has been here for probably a week and hasn't gotten any bigger or smaller, and I don't know how it got there. Should I be concerned?

    It looks to be some sort of mechanical damage. If it isn't getting any bigger, then I wouldn't really worry about it. I could be wrong, though.

    I THINK it was there when it arrived in the mail. But I can't be sure.

    No bite marks or fungus like damage, I don't think you have anything to worry about
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Looks like the leaf ripped a little during handling at some point and due to the cells being exposed to air they dried up and turned brown around that area. Like PsychoSarah said, nothing to worry about

    Ditto. Simple tear injury.
