    Good call- Chibae's point is very important! Open wounds on plants and handling/touching one plant and then another can transmit a virus. Roots act as an opening for viral transmission too, so don't let them share a water source if you are concerned, keep them in separate trays if you use this method.

    It really looks like a light deficit to me with a touch of root rot. The yellow of the mature leaves indication that they they are not getting a enough sun. And the blackening of new growth would indicate a fungal attack of the roots from using peat that doesn't have enough drainage. I'd say repot in a 1:1 (peat:sand) mix and give it full sun.

    I would second Hermes. Though not severely etiolated the foliage looks like it could certainly use more sun light! At this time of year, unless you have a low laying clone, traps should be erect and the inside of the traps should have either a hint or a deep coloration of red. I would not personally blame a virus just yet but attempt to give the plant more direct sunlight (no less than 8 hrs). Good luck!

    Plant diseases including viruses can be vectored by insects. Fungus gnats are a major source of plant disease spread.
