    What kind of Nepenthes is it? When I moved into my new flat one year ago, I had no place for the x ventrata, so I simply put it into the bathroom. There it stood for half a year in a dark cornerm taking humidy as low as 35% and tempratures of under 10C. I think I gave her water about four times in that periot. It didnt die (it made no pitchers off course). So I cant understand how someone can kill a plant in one day. Either its an ultra senisble highland species or you have put it into acid [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Anyway, knowing what kind of Nep it is would help a lot.

    PS: I hope you used destilled water

    I payed $8 for this plant, which won't break my bank but a bit pricey. It is hard to tell what kind of Nep it is because it is so small, I did use distilled water for the plant. I put a bag over the plant a few days ago, so there would be more humidity around the plant like some of you said to do, and it is not looking any better. The leaves look really weak, and the two small pitchers it has are laying on their sides [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    lol @ Travis a D.Capensis in shock! lol. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I doubt your Nep is an Ultrahighland, Ultrahighlands must be purchased from large Nepenthes nursury's. You think 8 dollars is alot? I usually spend 50-80 dollars everytime I buy a few Nepenthes.

    I am poor though, so it is a lot of money compared to the 3 to 4 dollar VFT's that I usually buy. I wish I could spend 50-80 dollars on plants, and if I could I think I surely would [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I am not an expert at this plant stuff, all I know is I love and cherish the CP's that I do have, I don't know what I would do with out them. They really truly bring a lot of joy into my life, I know it might sound crazy that a few little (and big) venus fly traps and a few pitcher plants could actually do this, but they do. Thanks for all the help with my first Nep. I guess I will just have to wait and be more patient to see what happens.
