    The plants definitely do all of that.... in nature. Of course, the conditions and media we use to grow them are not the same. When you water from the top you tend get fungus, mold, crown rot, etc,...

    just based off the picture and without any further information I notice there is a LOT of standing water on the leaves. If you get water on the crown (where new growth comes from) you can get that...

    pictures would be a big help, just use a site like imgur.com to post them

    Other than that, how are you watering them? How often? Are you fertilizing or feeding them anything? How are they getting...

    Which version of the Osmocote are you using? I was already considering this since someone else I know has been using it successfully but I didn't know which to purchase.

    Just realized I didn't answer your initial question. Oops! For perspective, my light only covers the size of a 55 gallon aquarium that I have indoors and that is about all the space it can handle...

    All I can do is tell you what I've been using for almost 3 years now and how it has gone for me. I have a 36" long LED light that is 7k, 40w with built in 660nm red LED's as well. My lighting is...

    Either way it is on them. If they did it they know that. If they didn't, then they need to handle that problem. You did the right thing

    Someone else can add in their thoughts, but my first instinct is crown rot. My second thought is possibly a bacterial infection of some sort.

    Are you top watering or bottom? I can see a lot of...

    I'm no expert and I'm sure someone else here will reply that has more knowledge, but my first guess would be fungus : cercospora

    Damage from cold, disease or otherwise?

    That could very well be correct. I have a "baby" of the one I mentioned and the pitchers look just like what she posted, but there are minor differences to the lid and internal pitcher coloring. ...

    I don't see why not. In nature they eat flies, bees, ants, etc. so a cricket seems safe enough. Heck, I've seen videos where a stray frog, snake or mouse was found in a pitcher, lol.

    Another easy way to feed them if they don't have the opportunity to feed themselves is frozen blood worms (local pet store purchase). Just put a bit in distilled water and then I use a pipette to...

    Hello and welcome to the forum! I'm relatively new here as well but, to me, that look a lot like N. Maxima x Veitchii?? I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
    In any case, this hobby...

    This is one of the reasons I love my Finnex LED setup. I've watched too many videos where they use those "blurple" lights and you can't see detail or the natural beauty of the plants. Just a dark...

    I purchased the Finnex 247 Planted+ SE because it has both of the wavelengths of light that plants need for both leafing and flowering. There is a newer version of that now since mine is over 3...
