Did you use a fresh pot / sterilized media ?
All good points, Supercazzola! I'm gonna say no way to the possibility of fertilizer in the media. However, I have never bothered to sterilize any media for my plants, sorry to say. Or the pots. I usually just kinda swab them out with rainwater and get the "crud" out of them. As far as the roots, I was as gentle as possible with them, but we all know how delicate and brittle Nepenthes roots can be. In hindsight, I wish I had just put the root ball with some of the old media into a bigger pot with fresh media. But, too late for that! The only reason I even repotted it was because the plant was getting large and lopsided and had been blown down by the wind a couple of times. Also, unfortunately there was a cool snap that came through the night I repotted the plant. Just a perfect storm of how to murder a nice plant, I suppose. Guilty as charged. Lol.
