Rotten spots on Nep?

Hey Everyone!

My Nep. is getting rotten spots on it's leafs? I don't keep it in standing water only damp soil. The soil it's in is just Spagnum Moss because I can't get the proper mix I've order some from Www.Cobraplants.com yesterday and should be here tomorrow! So I was just wondering what can I do to help this plant?

This is the plant he stays by a sunny windowsill inside.

Here is the most rotten leaf.

Here is the biggest pitcher on the plant hes a trooper!

That plant looks unhappy. I would pour water through it every couple days, allowing the water to drain right through. Also, I would have artificial light about 4-6" above it.

Also, I would get it out of direct Sun unless it VERY early morning or very late afternoon Sun. Bright diffused seems to be their favorite.

Humidity is too low, that is why the leaves curled. Try bagging it up or place it in a covered tank.
