my first post about my first ping (hopefully). i just got my order today from pft.com, and the other plants looked great, but my ping did not. i'd include a picture of it's sad state, but my digital camera is even more sad. anyway, the leaves are shriveled, and the plant was not "in the ground", it was loose on top. as this is my first ping, i am not too sure about how to properly care for it, but i thought i would try to replant it, get the roots submerged in the soil. i was cleaning off some of the dirt that had invariably gotten on the leaves, as well as cleaning some other spots, and when i was touching the roots, i noticed movement. now, i know cp's are some strange plants, but i was completely unaware that their roots would almost immediately move upon touch. then, after thinking about it for a minute, i figure it was probably a worm rather than the root. after a little more playing, i finally isolated the worm, a really skinny thing, whitish, not very long (looked like a root). is this thing eating my plant's roots? does he probably have friends in the same soil? i dont know if the plant will be able to make it out of this or not, it still has some green, though mostly a darker green, like it is not getting enough water. i did notice, in working with re-planting it, that the leaves were sticky still.
any help anyone?
