how long have you had the plant? what kind of substrate mix are you using?
Are these the original leaves that you are showing(i.e. the ones it came with after shipping) us? Reason I ask is it has been my experience that 1/2 of the leaves die off soon after planting and the other half will not produce dew but I let em hang around to absorb sunlight......ALL the dews I have only started dewing on their the new leaves they made after it was planted.
I can't really comment on your particular dew but the african variants seem to grow the best in my environment(usa zone7). I have some temperate species too; they are kind of fussy at first but start growing quickly only after a week or so; however I live in their native environment and can grow them outside with no real maintenance other than water(minus the african ones but they like it more and grow faster than the temperate ones).
My experiences with light are as follows: the larger plants do not care but the small ones don't seem to do well but I think it is also a heat related issue as well. I noticed that a day of mid 90's today wilted a few of my capillaris's and my smaller capensis's leaves. I don't believe they like excessive summer heat but they might not care once acclimated/healthier.
Yeah i'm with bloobworms, i have hundreds of them, at dads their native and fill the creeks, but when i moved to townsville for uni they suffered, so i had to change conditions, here is how they like to be grown. Temp Day 18-30C, night 12-25C, humidity 70% and up, soil preffered sphagnum pure or with 1/4 perlite, they will tolerate 1:1 peat sand but this creates a tree effect and requires ridiculious humidity, light, they will tolerate full sun in optimium contitions but if your not in them bright light all day or for atleast a few hours, i have some growing in full morning sun for 4-5hours a day but with 70% shadecloth above them, they also like a water table, in a 12cm tall pot (what i use) they like 3-5cm water level, never fertalise and food can be bloodworms or betta pellets (fighter fish), they also dislike stagnant air as their food will mould so if they're in a tank or storage container (this works well) they will benifit with a small fan, like a solar fan off ebay hooked upto 2 AA batteries its easy, costs about $10au and i only replace battereries once per month so cheap, also if you can get moss growing in the pot its a good sign of healthy humidity, water level and builds humidity itself.
that fluffy stuff is a mould, its more common in dry climates, tsv is full of it and its best to pick it out with tweezers, also the three sisters (adelea is one) are super sensetive to chemicals, e.g you can fertalise burmanni and regia but never adelea, i have trialed several fertalisers and it just burns their leaves, yet other drosera don't care about a weak orchid fertaliser (1/5th strenghth i use).
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: hey mylesg. glad to hear that. Love this forum. Facebook can't organize knowledge like this. Will participate as much as I can.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
