    Did you just get the plant recently? Nepenthes can take months to adjust to a new environment.

    Repotting can also set plants back but what are your growing conditions? Temperatures, humidity, etc....

    We're going to need a lot more information before we can help. What are your conditions ? Humidity, lighting, media, day/night temps, water quality and practices etc.....

    The conditions are
    60-90% humidity
    Its June and the average night temps are around 12 degrees Celsius and average day temps are around 22.
    It is hanging next to a large window, the light should be fine because the other nepenthes are growing great and the leaves are coloring up a little bit.
    The media is a mix of orchid bark, LFS and perlite.
    And i dont think the water is the problem, its tank water and the others don't seem to mind it.

    It might be the sun is to powerful for it at the moment or did it just come out of a bag? Sometimes the leaves get soft and wilty due to acclamation. And some get to hot and dried out, do u mist? Could u possibly attach a picture? Thanks i hope it recovers
