    My own plant, I moved immediately to a mix of long-fibered sphagnum moss, perlite, bark and lava rock - not unlike my usual mix for nepenthes - except maybe for the addition of a little peat moss. Since I got it in winter, there was little acclimation shock. Nevertheless the tips of the leaves browned within days of me getting it. About a month ago, I started seeing signs of life and this is how the plant looks now. The only growth under my care is the new bright green stuff:

    Mass probably put miracle grow fertilizer in it before he sent it.
    Maybe it just went dormant and you threw away a live cobra plant.

    No it wasn't dormant. I had it sitting outside in 80 degree weather for 3 months and no new growth or anything. I guess it was just a dud.

    umm....80 degree weather, and you probably kept it in the same small pot that it came with? sounds like a perfect recipe for sauteed darlingtonia rhizomes.

    I watered it evey day with pure water. I also repotted it in it's proper soil mix. (one part peat moss one part perlite and one part orchid bark with no fertilizer)

    I'm not blaming it on you. I was teasing you. You didn't see the wink? It was just a plant that didn't make it is all it's fine.
