    well I've had this HD mystery nep four awhile and its sent up three new leaves. The first two were really deformed and the most recent is starting to looik normal. Could its deformed leaves be from stress?

    It could definitely be stress. Or it could be like the Nep someone posted recently (was it Capslock?) that is permanently deformed!

    Hey Flip,

    Hope you're okay! Mutated leaves can come from low humidity, or pests - take a close look under a desk lamp or something and see if that's the case. My plant had some trouble when it was younger, up until it had about 10 leaves/pitchers. It could be growing pains [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    hmm, I don't think its humidity... the other two neps with it are making leaves/pitchers quite well. What kind of pest would it be? now I'm worried about the other two if its pests....

    I had the funky/crunchy blackish mold/fungus? on mine before on the underside of the leaves. I just wiped it off with a damp paper towel a few times. Don't worry about it until you take a closer look. It could be anything from a draft causing lower humidity to just a quick change in the weather while you weren't at home.

    Naw, I bet it was just stressed out from before you got it and is now recovering. I've noticed a 3-4 leaf lag time for growing conditions affecting leaf structure. When I had the big water drought a few months back, one of my plants started making leaves with holes in them about a month later, 3 of them total had the weirdness and now it's back to normal
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    I'm thinking its stress... When I bought it it was pretty sad.... I checked all the plants and I see no funky/crunchy stuff.

    thanks guys for the help![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
