Can someone tell me if a night temperature
of about 57F is too low for Nepenthes
gracilis seedlings that are about 7 months
old. A few seedlings have lost some of their
leaves. In response I've decreased the
moisture of the growing medium slightly and
the situation seems to have stabilized for
the moment (the newest leaf of these
seedlings is still alive). However this
condition has only occured with a few of my
N. gracilis seedlings. Maybee this is an
early warning sign.
