Last July I found an unknown nep at a garden center that was in poor
condition. It was in clear-plastic cube and when I picked it up to
take a closer look, the lower part containg the plant fell to the floor
spattering spag. moss and peat all over my shoes. The plant wasn't very
happy about either. I offered the person-in-charge 50 cents for it but
he insisted on a dollar.
The pics. The top one is just after I had replanted the badly traumatized
nep. After a couple of months and a small amount of new growth, it started
deteriorating to the point where the last resort was to snip off what
little green there was and place it in live sphagnum. So I decided to
check the roots on the mother plant, and as I expected, there were none.
Put some root hormone and planted it in ls and now it has started to turn
green and is showing signs of new root growth.
The lower pic is of the results so far. The container is 1" (2.5cm) in
