Hello, I have this capensis growing under 4 T5 of 9w each along with othe cp's that do fine but she's not, months ago she thrived under the same lights but got infested, I fumigated, it died off and regrew normally but from a couple of months to now it has been growing odd with little dew and bended leaves.

I use distilled water. What could ot be? The pings, cephalotus and vft that live aside are well.

I have the same thing going on with the capensis 'Alba' I have under lights, and I'm just as stumped as you.

I think eventually they get tired and hot and just look like crap. Give them a little time and they perk back up.

I second Panman. Crown looks good, Its got some dew, and leaves arent super deformed. No worries, especially if it was just heavily infested a couple months ago.

Maybe a long term effect of the insecticide?
