    my mom called me the other day and said she saw a plant that looked like some of the ones that i have at the local farmers market, and asked me if i wanted her to grab it for me, i figured it might be interesting to see what it is so i said yeah,

    turns out its a rather sickly-looking Aliciae. i;ve had it for a week now or so, and cant get it to perk up. do any of you have an idea what might be wrong with it? it was very, very wet when i got it, and now i keeep it about 2 1/2 inches under my flourescents.

    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    Looks like it needs a bit more light and time to grow. Be patient, I've killed more plants with good intentions than the right conditions and neglect. Just keep it watered and in a month it will look brand new.

    IMO D. aliciae doesn't like alot of water as it is vey susceptible to a fungus that will make it rot. I would just keep the soil moist right now, and see if it perks up. Also, how long have you had it and what conditions are you giving it?
