Welcome. I am just the opposite. I seem to be able to grow everything except for Nepenthes. I haven't actually killed one yet, but they are looking pretty bad at the moment.

Hey guys. I just received my first plant ever and I noticed that within a week, my capensis leaves are turning brown/black. As you can see in the picture, even the new leaves are all brown/black. I'm using distilled water and it's placed on the south window. It's getting around 5+ hours of sun. What is going on? What can I do?
