    Had to look up Louisa as I had never heard of it before (and it's not officially registered anywhere); that last plant does look similar, but it could also possibly be a young sanguinea "orange."
    And squidfengshui: perhaps if you are in fact misting often enough or enough water collects in the region then it may be raising humidity a fair amount; conversely, because you mist them, the plants have gotten used to this constant presence of water and appear to suffer when you do not because they are no longer acclimated to the ambient conditions. If they are not misted and allowed to acclimate, the current leaves might look ratty but eventually new growth would appear that is adapted. I had a N. ventricosa and 'Miranda' that lived for over a year in the ambient humidity of my house (which probably averaged only around 25-40% back then) and while they did not necessarily pitcher readily ('Miranda' did more than ventricosa), and they grew fine.

    Good to know. Perhaps one day I'll play around with that idea and see what happens!

    Raising humidity may not help. I had an unknown Nepenthes which was thought to be Miranda and it did the same, no lids or malformed. I had it in a terrarium with 80+ % humidity. I don't know why but after I sold it I was told that it thrives on windowsill in much lower humidity. Hope you solve the problem!
    Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-Pete-s-plants

    If that's the case then it would likely be a soil issue, and a repot would be recommended.

    Apparently the misting is working, as the pitchers are looking a lot better! Though not fully formed, they seem to have a lot of meat on them.
