    Nep help

    What's wrong with my n. Rob?

    I haven't changed any thing really. The heat has kicked on so maybe the rh has dropped a touch.

    Any advise from the nep experts would be awesome!!!!

    That's very odd behavior. Has it been repotted recently?

    nope. been in the same pot for about a year now. the spagh is happy on top. been flushing with rain water. i really cant think of anything that has changed. other than humidity...maybe.

    ive never seen the curled leaves on any neps. cant think of what the issue could be. im at a loss.

    J,
    I must admit, that is rather odd behavior. I've not seen any of my Nepenthes do that. You suggested maybe the humidity is lower, so I guess the question is: how much lower? I doubt we're talking 30% or some such thing....

    Weird. I don't really have a good guess for that. I'm not saying this is definite, but leaves can curl in response to drought stress or root rot (leaves can't get water, show wilting). Granted, the curling is happening in a very strange way. Also, the leaf surface doesn't appear dehydrated.

    But nevertheless, questions:
    How are the roots?
    How is the drainage from the media?
    Is there good airflow to the roots in that glazed ceramic pot?
    Is it possible the drainage hole is stopped up?
    Diet of the plant?

    But nevertheless, questions:
    How are the roots? not sure. would have to dig it up.
    How is the drainage from the media? drains well.
    Is there good airflow to the roots in that glazed ceramic pot? not sure.
    Is it possible the drainage hole is stopped up? nope
    Diet of the plant? unchanged. water, ferts and cichlid pellets randomlly

    nope. nothing out of the norm.
    the only change is that i moved a few plants that was in from of it a few weeks ago. they could have created a small micro climate that it liked. now with the combo of moving them and the heat sucking up RH maybe it more than it wants to handle.

    should i bother digging it up to check roots?
