Ive recently noticed the tips of my nepenthes turning dark brown. What does that mean? What can I do to fix it?

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 water sitting on the leaves and that typically isn't a good thing. Place your plants in a tray of some type and they will absorb the water.

When you say the tips are brown do you mean the tips of the leaves where the tendrils are or the growth point of the plant?

Considering the in lauded photos, I believe the OP is referring to the stem area from which the newest growth is emerging.

I have never experienced it personally *crosses fingers AND knocks on wood* so I only remember things I've read previously. Instead of telling you incorrectly I would suggest you Google-fu it or see if someone with better info on here can confidently tell you. When it comes to a CP getting bad info can be deadly and I'd rather avoid that in this case.
