    Forcing Nepenthes to pitcher?

    Def. light. I have one in the tropics. During the summer I've sometimes had it in direct sunlight for up to six hours. It turns a nice shade of red. Season also seems to play a role - mine pitchers in winter and late summer... but can go months in betweeen before producing a new round. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The new growth looks fine. If it was fungus, it's probably dead. What you see on the old leaves is essentially scarring - it won't go away. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Mine sit in full deep shade all day, in a cup of damp LFS. And that's it. They root faster when it's warm, but root in the cold too. They don't seem to care about humidity.

    Shade Tolerant Nepenthes?

    Huh. Ok. Learn something new everyday. Can you tell me how you go about acclimating them to more light? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shade Tolerant Nepenthes?

    I have to disagree about bicalcarata- they are my most light sensitive. Yes, they can take an hour or two of morning sun, and even seem to like it, but mine usually live in bright full shade, most of the year.

    Don't forget ampullaria and Viking!

    Sorry to see what your plants are going through. I'll give you a more lengthy reponse. Cercispora is unlikely to be the problem. While I see some in that picture, that fungus is literally everywhere. Just about every plant that is vulnerable to it in the world is infected with it, but it is generally not a major problem. Healthy plants live with it, and only see blooms of it when something else, usually environmental, is wrong. Looking at the picture, it does look like some old sunburn is there on the older growth, or if this is a sudden change, I would wonder if the roots are compromised, and you are seeing leaf dieback as a result.

    Nepenthes bicalcarata

    Your sustained winter temperatures will kill this plant. Mine live outdoors, and suffer with an overnight average around 18C. If it goes below 10 for even an hour I take them inside. As is, I see almost no new growth from January until it warms up, averaging about 25 at night and 35 during the day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
