    May just be nectar pores then, though I usually see these mostly on the top sides. Wait till the experts weigh in

    Yeah, some of my plants look like that too, and for years. Afaik they're not diseased. I'm assuming it's just nectar.

    This is the first I've heard about "nectar pores" on neps, especially showing up as frightening black dots on the leaves. I haven't personally seen these on my plants, but I'm hoping someone more versed can chime in, because this would be worrying to me if I saw them on my own plants. One would think if it were a natural product of the plant it would be either uniform or symmetrical in nature, rather than scattered randomly over the leaf surface. :/

    To me it looks like bugs, but then again I cant tell because of the 2 bit resolution on the pics.

    Ill take some pictures of one of my nepenthes that is breaking out with nectaries for compairing
