    New heli... sad looking. Any tips?

    Hey folks,

    I got this little guy today, and it's not looking so good. I sent an email to the vendor shortly after I opened it. I'm not hopeful for it. Any suggestions to bring it back would be greatly appreciated.

    Indeed. Most indeededly. Phillip J. Frye

    I would say bag it and give it a little ferts in the pitchers as well as trichoderma. What type of heli is it?

    oh dear....looks like a trich bath might be needed....looks like it's the sudden death fungus that helis are suspected to be victim to...looks pretty advanced---not going to lie, you might lose it...

    that being said,
    1) do keep the temps low, the norm is nothing above 80F, but for this plant i would say peak at 75F
    2) high humidity
    3) night time drops to 50F
    4) trich bath....
    5) bag the plant if possible...

    best of luck---i hope you get the situation resolved.
    of course, and advice given by the heli gods take precedence over mine.

    Any good looking new growth anywhere? If not, I wouldn't give it good odds.
    How did the roots look?

    Hard to believe someone sent that out, it obviously had to look rough when they packed it up.... I would request a replacement or refund.

    foreign or domestic vendor?

    I gave it a trichoderma bath the moment I opened it. It's in my heli terrarium, is there any risk to the other plants in there? thanks for the quick resonses, it's really appreciated. I'll bag it immediately.

    It's a heli minor, btw... sorry for leaving that out. I just hope the vendor makes it right. I've wanted one of these for a while, and was totally disappointed when I saw it.
