Hello,
I bought this Nepenthes veitchii in september. It's been growing okay but few day ago I noticed yellowing of the edges of its leaves. I am not sure if the plant is alright since the yellowing appeared on the newer leaf (it was formed in october or november). Latest leaf and grow point are still green. I also checked the roots and they seemed to be fine. Should I be worried?
Looking forward for your answers.

I don't think direct sun through a window would burn it. Has anything else changed? Water?

No, it has been in the same conditions since I bought it. I water it when the top of the soil is dry. Maybe the leaves are just ageing?

Is it possible that it has been overwatered and has root rot?

From the top, the growth point looks alright. Perhaps it was sun damage, particularly if it isn't acclimated for more direct light. In general, when a plant is overwatered, the leaves lose their integrity and become "softer" whereas they become brittle when underwatered. Was the pot almost dried out at any point over the last few days? If the pot dries out too far, the sun can work over a plant. Typically Neps prefer indirect light over direct sun. The ones I keep indoors only catch the morning sun through the window and I supplement it with some LED panels.

No, I never let it dry out completely. I water it when the top part of the soil is dry but not bone dry. I will move it to a shadier spot. Thank you so much for your answers guys
