Hi, (I'm new to these forums so please be patient) I have been worrying about what I think is a N Gaya.
The plant's leaves have been continuing to die from the bottom up, something I haven't noticed with other Nepenthes. Is this normal? I live in a 8a growing zone, no humidity. This plant is kept indoors.

Looks normal to me. The taller nepenthes grow as they vine, the more leaves die off toward the base. The stem is supposed to become woody like it is in the photo. As long as the rest of the plant looks healthy and the growth point is fine, there shouldn't be anything wrong.
