    Young Nep lower leaf die off. Help please.

    Hello everyone. I have a small 10 gal highland set up. It has a 48w T5HO over it for about 14 hrs a day and the humidity stays around 80%. There is about a 10-degree temp drop at night +/-. Everything seems to be good as far as the setup goes. However, all the lower leaves seem to die off fast so only the top 3rd of the plant is green and have leaves and traps. The larges plant in this setup is about 8-10 inches across and everything else is much smaller.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hey,

    Depending on the amount of green "healthy" leaves, it may be just fine, but there are definitely some other factors and information that could help in seeing the issue and how to solve it. Are the leaves burning or darkening? How are the pitchers? Does the new growth seem smaller than before? How close are the plants to the lights? Moss growing? These can all help indicate health in the plant.

    Any pictures would be great as well!
    Have a wonderful day!

    Here are a couple plant and they all look the same in one way or another. Depending on the plant they are all 8"-12" away. My Heli seems to be doing just fine. Most of the moss seems to be doing of(I've always had so-so luck with live moss).

    Your plants look fine, new growth is green and healthy looking and it's just old leaves dying off naturally. However, that "jamban" looks like inermis or dubia.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Thank you for the reply. I got the Jonian from a common friend(or I'm at least im 90% sure). After I got it he said it might be a cros but he's not sure.

    The plants look great! Plenty of healthy growth and pitchering. I would not be worried in the slightest.

    Indeed, as it was previously stated, that is not N. Jamban. Looks very much like N. Dubia to me, but likely N. Dubia x Jamban.
    Have a wonderful day!

    Like I said it was lent as a Jamban but later he had gotten some info and said it might be an X

    I'll second that the plant looks very much like dubia.
