When a new leaf starts to grow, is the pitcher at the end supposed to be brown? I think it may be dead because it was shipped all the way from California (and I live in Pennsylvania....quite a bit away from California) and it may have been damaged from the shipping. Any help would be appreciated!!
well i could be dead from shock of the travel.. a picture would be really helpful with this but ususally if a pictures dead it turns black and shrivels up.. if you wanna know more about Nepenthes just read my caresheet viewtopic.php?f=10&t=843
The pitchers will turen black if they are dead. new unopened pitchers are usually brown with a little bit of fuzz on them. even if it is dead, a new leaf will open with a brand new pitcher on the end in a few months. Hope this helps, Pat.
