Help! Is my pitcher plant getting sunburn?

by Bambonia » Sat Jan 12, 2019 8:19 am

Hello. So i bought this pitcher 2 months ago. The plant’s growth has been declining after that and now it keeps staying this small without any huge growth. I have tried to do the tray method, give it some shade and watering it regularly. But it seems like the plant doesn’t adapt to my place. I’ve been noticing some small red dots appear on the leave and after few days that leaf died off. Is it getting sunburned?

More info would help. Like where do you keep it, whats the temp/humidity, how much light does it get and what kind. Also, what is your media mix and is that a clay pot?

The reddeningnof the leaves is a sign of to much sun to quickly. Your not suppose to keep your nepenthes sitting in water.
We all had better days. Some as bright as day, some as dark as night. May you let the stars and moonlight guide you to the right direction, towards a brighter future.
