Hey, I just ordered the starter set from **********.com, and when the nepenthes arrived, the leaves are nice and green, but the pitchers have turned crinkley brown. I removed the dead pitchers, and now the plant is just leaves in a pot, with pitcherless tendrils. Will pitchers grow again on the ends of those tendrils, or will it have to make new leaves for pitchers? Also, how long will it probably take? I have it growing in a terrarium with good humidity and sunlight.
On the website, it said that it was N. ventricosa, but the biggest shriveled pitcher had remnants of wing ladders running up the front of it. To my knowledge, ventricosa doesn't have this. I think it may have been substituted for an alata, ventrata, or x judith finn, but I'm not sure, because there aren't any new pitchers to compare.
