I have a N. gaya that was doing good like a month ago. But the last month it turned very pale and pitchers are starting to die off. It is planted in an unknown substrate, probably coconut coir, peat and something else. I didn’t change anything in the care, but it receives more and more direct sunlight through a window and heats up the black pot. Also the pitchers get bleached from the sun. Is the sun and heat the problem or something else?
Going back here to your first post... It appears that you've had this plant for close to four months now and it did look good when you first got it. It does look a lot worse. This is a link to the thread you posted when you first got it and shows the plant in really good condition...
It seems that if it was under-watered that there would be more brittle, brown leaf margins than what I see, but an overall yellowing makes me think that that (under-watering) is what is going on. Overwatering, from what you've shared, isn't the issue. You mentioned "heat"...neps don't really like heat. My little ventrata that I got started from a cutting refused to put on a pitcher through the heat of our summer...it's finally trying to put a few on since it has cooled down. The heat coming in through the window may be the culprit in turning your's pale...that, plus the drought it has experienced (allowing it to go limp). If it is drying out really quick then you might just need a shallow saucer under it
...you definitely don't want it going dry.
