Nepenthes leaves and pitcher problems

Posted by mjmoose none (My Page) on

I have a Nepenthes and I'm new to taking care of carnivorous plants.

The leaves have developed small brown spots. One of the leaves has started turning brown at the tip. New leaves are coming out twisted and curling. The pitchers are also starting to die.

I'm in Upstate New York and the plant is kept inside next to a window where it receives indirect light. It's watered everyday with distilled water.

Any help/suggestions/advice would be appreciated.

RE: Nepenthes leaves and pitcher problems

I have one also that the pictures are starting to die on. As long as you are providing distilled or rain water, I'm thinking it's just time for them to die. That's what everyone told me. If your still worried maybe post a picture!
