did you spray something on it? last time i saw something similar was when i sprayed a home made fertilizer that was too concentrated and it apparently burned the leaves.

No i do not fertilize , although i tried once with sea weed fertilizer but nothing happened so never saw the need to use it again. Something similar happened with my gaya, i repotted it and stopped but now i can see the spots showing again on the gaya. Also in the rebecca soper the first spots happened about three months ago but now are getting bigger.

You bring it under more intense light or was there a change in its environment recently? Did the pots get drier than normal?

It did got a little dry because i taught it was fungus from to much water, but apart from that nothing has changed. Also i noted that on the leaves there is some limestone dust ( in malta our main stone is made from limestone And with all the construction happening next to our house the nepenthes are getting some dust, but only on these 2 nepenthes its happening.
