This Nepenthes Diane was delivered about a month ago during a cold snap, the heat pack pooped out 2 days prior delivery (which was several days late). All the other plants from the shipment are fine but I think this one has leaf spot disease.

Numerous sites recommend removing the infected leaves.
I treated it with Bio 3 in 1 which claims to treat leaf spot.
Would you folks cut off the infected leaves? I hesitate being that it went through a fair amount of trama?

Is that a St. Gaya? If it is mine had an issue with most all the leaves and pitchers discoloring and then dying off on me. I cut it back except for what was not affected and bagged it up. It has been that way for close to 2 months and is actually showing signs of recovering now. It is the only Nep I have left as my others died and I decided against replacing them.

Oh man, that’s a bummer. This is a hybrid called Diana. I think maybe the hybrid thing is very tricky. I am having good luck with a few highland pure bred and California Carnivore hybrids. Two of my other hybrids are troubled though. They seem to be more susceptible to blights.
