    i have them in a green house in my room about one and a half feet away from some flourescent lights
    temp is about 70-85
    and it gets misted buy a ultrasonic fogger thing mornigs and nights
    and it looks like its in some spagnum moss

    hello oliver

    It looks like you have your new plants in the right conditions. The old pitchers die off after a while, so there's nothing wrong with either of your plants. There are lots of places online with cultivation tips, you might want to check if you have everything right

    enoc22,
    Your Nepenthes growing condition sounds good. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] But I would repot the plant just in case if the plant is planted in wrong media. Anyway enjoy growing your Nepenthes.
