    They look like they got way too much heat/sun scorch. As mentioned in other thread, may be 17C outside, but in your little hot house, sitting in all day sun, IMO they've been scorched. Yuck--what a sad sight. Given time, they may form new growth at leaf axils (where leaf meets stems), but I'm not a Nepenthes expert. I wonder what nepenthes gracilis thinks after seeing these pics.

    My chicken legs taste like chicken--only less meaty.

    Niki, you said your greenhouse is identical to mine, right? I have mine indoors in an east facing window. It gets about 5 hours of morning sun then shade for the rest of the day. My lowlanders and orchids love it in there. My highlanders grow outside year round.
    I also read in another thread by you that your greenhouse gets really hot and no ventilation. I had a problem with no air circulation and fungus was starting to pop up here and there.
    I solved that by putting 2 12 volt computer power supply fans inside the greenhouse and I have a 3rd one actually built into the side, drawing air into the greenhouse.
    heres pics of the fans...

    [img]http://home.**********.com/users/cncreefer/fan%202.JPG[/img] No more fungus, and the 3rd fan is used to control the humidity levels.
    the plants in the pics look like they got scorched by the sun. my N. coccinea looked like that when I first got it and put it in the sun(stoopid mistake). I put that plant in the window where the greenhouse now sits and it recovered in about 1 and a half months.
    Your plants still have green down by the base of the leaves, that's a good sign. I think they can be saved.

    Well, they aren't happy for one thing!

    No doubt its too hot for them. That kind of damage looks like hot and dry damage, AKA low humidity, hot temps. Definetly start ventilating and maybe spray some distilled water in the air to bump up humidity, or buy an ultrasonic humidifier, and no it isn't a goner, looks ok to me, just a bit....burned.

    EDIT: on the other 2 plants, look like N. fusca, uh, they don't look like they will make it...wow those are some serious temps you have in there.

    It's likely the two in the lower pic are goners, though keep trying-you never know. From what I can see of the lone plant in the top picture, it "looks" like your growing tip is still good, so I think that has a good chance, depending on what happens from this point on.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Hardware store would have a humidifier of some sort, better chance would be like a local pharmacy...they run for about $30 USD....I could probably fix that N. fusca problem for you Nikki....pm me if you want details.
