    Hi Darcie,
    I'd respond but I've never seen anything like that. It doesn't look too good though!

    Well I am pondering..

    I am not a plant pathologist. The darker centers indicate to me some sort of infection.. probably fungal. On the other hand I have seen N. bical. and it's hybrids do some weird stuff when they got too cold or were unhappy with a radical shift in the environment. If you have a good systemic fungicide like Clearys it wouldn't hurt to give them a spray.

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

    Hi Darcie,

    My advice is to quarenteen the plants with these symptoms (if possible). Steve can decide what to do from there. Most likely it can be spread by leaf sucking insects. I was at the gardens the Friday before Steve left for vacation and he mentioned he was having a mealy bug outbreak.

    I am sure some of the other people there can give you some good advice.

    Good Luck
    Glenn

    Really, well shoot, sorry I missed you Glenn... The mealy outbreak is in the other greenhouse, although we have been having insect problems all over the place lately. I'll see if I can get an area cleared away for the ill looking plants. Thanks for your imput everyone, even knowing that it isn't something seen before helps because it could just be something weird with the plant that for some reason I never knowtested before.

    Darcie,
    I must agree with Tony. I've seen similar patterns on the older leaves of bicalcarata when the leaves were wet and temperatures drop suddenly down below 60 F. Drench the pot with a systemic fungicide and hope for the best.

    I was thinking it might have been water spot fungi. Thanks trent.
