    Brown spots on Nepenthes Ampullaria Pitchers

    Hey all. Recently I noticed one of my nepenthes ampullaria pitchers had some brown spots on it. I didn't think much of it (I assumed maybe it was the way that pitcher developed) until I took a closer look at the pitchers of the basals and saw that one of them also has the same brown spots. It has been growing in the same exact conditions for the past months and nothing developed until now. I don't know the exactly conditions it's been growing in since it has been doing so well I haven't bothered controlling anything. If I had to guess it's probably around 85f day 70 night with around 90% humidity in an enclosed terrarium with no fans. I might try to increase ventilation, and I've already sprayed with propiconazole. Has anyone had this happen, and what did you do to solve it? Thanks

    Picks would help, but if you can't provide them, can you describe the spots with more description?

    Pics are a little blurry, but looks like a combination of old pitcher and either tannin stains from the moss or sooty mold. Clearer image would help.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Will try to get a better pic. Tried washing it off but the stains still remained. @Whimgrinder any advice?
