    Hi Rubra,
    Same thing here, but I am watering daily from the top with superthrive solution, and moved the plants to a more shaded location. While I expected the old pitchers (few that they are) to die, I'm already seeing new growth and a healthy pink color at the base. Hang in there.

    Sounds like definite shock to me. I recommend you use a superthrive solution like JBL to counteract the shock and stimulate root growth!! Right away!!

    Hey gang,
    When we collected the plants they went into plastic bags were watered and were sealed. (High humidity) When I got them here to Atlanta, they soaked totally sumerged for several days until they were packed for shipping. Again they were sealed in plastic bags to be shipped. Many of these plants were literally ripped from the ground (honestly we did try and gently dig) and have little root mass. They were tangled in the roots of over grown shrubs growing and in soil that had no moisture in it. These plants have not had the best treatment. I suspected they would react this way. Cut the shriveling pitchers back, place them in the shade for a week or two and keep them moist but not overly wet. They will recover.

    How concerned should I be that my plants haven't arrived?

    What happened?? No post explaining what happened to the plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    I'm assuming they were distributed to growers in the region. Does anyone know? Just curious.

    How about some news on how the plants are doing in their new homes.
