I just noticed some blackish-brown tissue in the newest developing leaf of my Nepenthes macrophylla. The affected leaf is only about 3/4" long--the plant is only about 7" across.
If the affected area shows signs of growing, I'm tempted to cut the leaf to a very short (less than 1/8") stub. Would this kill the plant? My knowledge of Nepenthes anatomy is poor - not sure if this would remove the apical meristem.
I've been growing Nepenthes for many years -- this is the first time I've seen what appears to be leaf rot.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
