    I accidentally left a window open at night in front of my terrarium, and I think the temps dropped quite a bit for my lowlanders. A lot of my Neps look... desicatted I guess is the best word. The pitchers look like they imploded, the leaves are curled upwards, and several of the growing points are drooping downwards.

    Is there anything I can do to help them recover? Perhaps put water in the shrivelly pitchers?

    Oh dear. I don't think there's much you can do once the pitchers start shrivelling. Just keep it stable at optimal conditions and hopefully it'll recover faster.

    Sounds like a humidity drop also. Low temps won't kill a lowland plant but they certainly won't make it happy! Give them a chance in mild conditions to recover.
