    Sorry about the photo quality, but I took these quickly to ensure that I could trim them as soon as possible.

    I'd say its too warm and too humid. Warm temps and lots of humidity for highlanders equals a good cahnce of rot. What are your temp ranges for day and night?

    Thats my opinion.

    Hmmm, looks like temp, or fluctuating humidity to me... or stagnent water and root rot. All of which can cause food/water flow to cells to be reduced and cause a burn look. If your sphagnum is decaying, I would start by pitching it and replanting the plant in the scuzzy stuff. Otherwise, just flush all you're pots, dry out the whole container, then put everyone back in and use fresh water to ensure proper conditions and such.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    Egads!

    Really hard to pin down this sort of thing.. They look burned from something. To warm? Bad water? Too wet? Fertilizer/chemical?

    Something must have changed in the past few weeks.

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

    That's just it! I have NEVER used fertilizer on any on my Carnivorous plants, and I NEVER will! There have been no recent changes, and the temps have been the same low-mid seventies in the day low-mid fifties at night. I am absolutely puzzled, not to mention panicking my head off! Perfect water, I have tested the moisture, it certainly isn't too wet... Any other guesses? THANKS!!

    It seems to be perfect. I can maintain 80% humidity with the growchamber feeling "fresh" as opposed to "stale"... :/ I don't know what to say. So: < (Your words here)
