    Unhappy

    I purchased a N. ampullaria and shortly after I got it home and put it into my terrarium, several of the leaves turned brown. Looking at older pictures of the plant before I got it home, these same leaves were green, although a bit 'crinkled' looking. I'm wondering if it could be due to burning of the leaves (I had 4-40watt fluorescent tubes sitting directly on top of the glass lid of the terrarium, the top of the ampullaria was about 8 inches away) or a fungus (Savage Garden mentions something about a 'rusty' fungus which bothers Neps). Any opinions? A picture is at this site:

    Sounds like shock to me. Many plants, particularly lowlanders, have a bit of a turn after they've been transported or repotted. Wait a couple of months and it should recover.

    Thanks for the comments everyone! Tony: I just realized I put it in the 'General Discussions' forum at the moment I sent it! Sorry about that. Flip_Side_the_Pint: I will post a close-up picture of the leaves in a little bit, hopefully you could still help : ) And thanks for the comment, I bought the plant at the last NECPS meeting, everyone loved it. SydneyNeps: I believe it will recover in some time, there is evidence of pitcher growth. I'm keeping it under standard lowland conditions (per Savage Garden).

    Hey Stiffler,
    I got an amp in the mail as the second ever shipment of neps in my collection (2 years ago +). It took a solid 10 months to start growing for me!!
