    Is this root rot?

    The things I know of that could cause the effects you describe are: sudden increase in temperatures, sudden decrease in humidity, sudden increase in light. Any such changes recently?

    My house Nep (N. x ventrata)

    I meant that you have the lights overhead so that there would be more around the top than the bottom, in the way a vining plant would likely have it in the wild. With indoor hanging plants it is easy to end up lighting them more at the bottom. And, yes, I'd take a cutting!

    My house Nep (N. x ventrata)

    Your lighting should approximate a natural style of light for a climbing plant. That dude's getting big!

    Parasitic Plant

    'Kinda creepy but cool. I see you are growing a yellow-stemmed form of dodder, Ivan. When I lived in CA I remember seeing a bright orange variety.

    Help with drosera.. pest?

    I would add along with what the others ^ have said that misting your plants is probably not good for them. It often causes fungus and leaf-rot in established plants.

    So perplexing, 2 Droseras next to each other one full of dew the other isn't and droopy

    That seems a bit mysterious. Have you transplanted the poorer performing plant recently? I agree with Grey Moss on preferred soil media. Some sundews do much better in lfs, but not all.

    Villosa adjustment time

    A much better Nepenthes grower than I once told me that there are N. villosa clones that grow pretty much like an intermediate and others that act like extreme highlanders. You will probably want to know all you can about the needs of the plant you buy. For what it's worth.

    Please help my Argentii (again)

    While I'm nobody's idea of a Nepenthes pro, I'd say the little plant looks a bit roughed-up but o.k. overall. It is often a somewhat tense time when we begin with new plants and are trying to find out exactly what they want. I wish you success.
