    Have you killed a plant?

    I guess I'm trying to find some consolation here, because I think it might indeed be dead. I had my window open one day to try and cool down my room (which was at a blazing 78 degrees) and failed to realize that my N. Fusca sitting on the windowsill was probably getting blasted with some frigid Ohio winter air. Anyway, the entire thing has turned brown for now. I'm hoping that the roots and underground stuff, survived, and is rallying for a basal or activated node or something.

    I'm assuming I'm probably not the first person to kill something on accident. Anybody else done something stupid? Make me feel better

    Nope. But if it makes you feel better, i will kill neps the instant i touch them. They just brown up in my conditions unless i buy an already outside accustimized plant, then i have some luck. Thats why I tend to stay away from the wonderful plant nepenthes, from my home country. I sent some neps to someone so he can try to nurse them back. LOL, THAT DOESNT COUNT. :O

    When I had a D. aliciae when I began, after a month of growing, it started to look a bit crummy, and I thought that it was because it was flowering. It was almost all green and wasn't growing almost at all. So what did I do to try to make it grow? I put PURE SuperThrive right on the plant and let it go into the soil and roots. Maybe two cap fulls? Probably more. Then I went to bed after a few hours after that. I woke up in the morning to find it all shrivled looking, and by the next day, it completely died.

    Got a new one and I'm not going to mess up this time. xD

    What HAVEN'T I killed. Amongst my victims:

    dionaea muscipula, U. reniformis, U gibba (yeah, that's shameful!), P. primuliflora (that's pretty bad too), N. talangensis, S. leucophylla, N. mirabilis, P. moranensis.

    I haven't killed a lot of plants.. yet. So far: N. amp, two VFT dentates, and possibly my N. ventricosa (it's not my fault) that has spider mites
    The following statement is true.
