    Maintain humidity.

    No direct sunlight.

    Keep the plant in its temp range.

    Um, provide the appropriate conditions? I think the health of the leaves simply mirrors the health of the plant as a whole. Providing proper humidity, light, and temperature are all critical. The more consistent the conditions, the less trauma the leaves will reflect.

    Prevent damage from inappropriate cultural conditions and insects/diseases.. that should cover all the bases lol.

    All fun aside.. Nepenthes leaves can live for several years or longer. So one misstep and it takes a long long long time for the damage to dissappear.

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

    Wow, that is amazing. In the best environment, do the pitchers usually last as long as the leaves?

    I think the leaves tend to get more "waxy" when there is less humidity/harsher conditions. I've noticed that the leaves closest to the light/heat tend to be more shiny on my plants.
