    Because I was wondering what the thing wrong was, because evidently it was something. It appears to be the snowmelt. And I'm wondering how much I have to adjust because for the most part it's warmer. I'll put a thermometer in there to see what the average temperature is, because I only know the room outside the terrarium, which is notably warmer.

    You gave the impression that you knew what the temperatures were in the enclosure at the time of posting. Hawken is correct; the species name is written sanguinea, not sanguinae. Confucius had something to say on the subject: "The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their proper name". People will take you seriously when you do :-)

    terrarium probably being hotter to about 60 during the day and fifty at night. Humidity is probably at about 60-70% in there
    That doesn't look like I knew for sure what they were.

    The spelling of this Nepenthes species' name is something I never get right. I've read that it's sanguinea several times before and just never remember it. Speaking of proper names though, I wouldn't be calling Kong Qiu 'Confucius' if I were you.

    I agree. Its absolutely dispciable.
    Misinformation is the first step to Mis-info propagation!


    Anyways, As everybody here has said before, you need to change conditions.
    Either way, I find it strange that your growing ALL of these nepenthes in
    those cold conditions... I would also recommend you change that as soon as possible.
    ITs just inviting problems, even though there currently are none to be seen.

    PS- can we get a picture of the entire garage nepenthes?

    I'll get a picture of them soon. The rest look a lot better than the sanguinea.

    Agreed , especially since hawkin had already mentioned it without a sprinkling of ridicule
