Thread: Dead leaves

    Unhappy

    Hi folks, I'm new to growing CP's and need a little guidance. I Just got a few plants from ********** in the mail today. As I suspected there were some dead and/or dying leaves on just about all of them. This was especially true for the ping (It looked like it had a rough ride during shipping). Is it safe to remove the dead material from the plants or should I leave it and let nature run its course?

    One more thing, should I repot the plants right away or would it be best to just leave them in the containers they were shipped in (3 inch pots) until they outgrow them? All the plants are pretty small. Any advice?

    Looking forward to your comments! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Most CPs don't like to be moved around so your probubly best waiting untill they outgrow their pots, or at least untill a dormant-active transition. As to removing dead material, I remove the totally dead leaves from my VFTs and Neps. My Ping is just only now getting it's first dead leaf so I don't really know what you do with their leaves... anyone?

    Thanks for the replies! I snipped off the black leaves and left anything questionable alone. They're looking better already! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
