    No I don't think it is because of the lowland conditions. That was only a general point that you might not want to keep it that way long term.

    Careful on the alcohol. Too much and you can damage the plant. Sounds to me like it is the wax on the leaf surface your seeing....

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I am 100% sure its hard water . probably the previous wner heard that nepeenthes are quite fogive about tap water and he probably used it .its not fungus and be very carful with the rubbing alcohal . what i would do is repot the plant to be on the safe side .its the calcium or lime build up .

    Will I repotted the plant let it set in distilled water and there was nothng wrong with the soil or the roots. I had the plant for about 2 weeks now and after I put that alchol on the white stuff it is gone, but I am not to shure if this will come back it has only been 24hours so far i will undate if anything came back. I called the company that was selling this plant and they said they have been in business for a long time and always use distilled water and never plain water from the sink. So it is denfintly not hard water. I seen pics off what happenes when a plant is watered with hard water. The white stuff that i had on my plant looks nothing like that. Does anyone know how I should use 3336WP if this stuff does come back. I want to mix the 3336 in a gallon jug can anyone tell me how much I should solution I should mix with the water.
