    Heli Help!!

    Hello everyone!!

    I just received my very first heli!! Unfortunetly I think it may have been in the shipping box too long, because when I opened it up today all I could see is brown...

    There is just a hint of green left in it. Does anyone think that this plant will make it??
    Here are some pics of it;







    Thanks in advance for the opinions

    yes. it can. keep well watered though. fresh helis, especially those imported need lots of water as they lose much of it during their transport. bagging is great. i'd say you have about a 45-55% chance of it coming through---then again, i could be playing mr. optimist.

    the growth tip/point is the one green healthy part so id say it has a fighting chance! if those brown pitchers are necrotic/dead tissue, id remove them to avoid harboring pathogens that may spread to the healthy part.

    positive vibes goin to ur lil heli trooper.

    It might? The bottoms of those brown pitchers look toast, but if the whole of that one decent looking one is white towards the bottom where the root is, then it might survive just fine. Toss some live sphag around it though... somehow that's a miracle-cure for them.

    Honestly I wouldn't disturb it that much. I was always afraid to chop off dead pitchers for fear of breaking lives ones or hurting the... rhizome? is that the right word Butch or Bigbella or a Heli expert? Where are y'alls!

    I would just chop off the brown stuff near the base but not disturb the base. Like everyone else said, just keep it moist but not overly wet as to prevent rot. Um.... just keep your eye on it, its going to be a while before it recovers.

    You paid MONEY for that? I'd be contacting the seller and pursuing a refund if I got that sad little fragment shipped to me.
