I received some small (5" across) bareroot rafflesiana yesterday, and promptly put them in 4" plastic pots using pft's soil mix and distilled water. I wet and mixed the soil down into a muddy consistecy, filled the pot, dug a hole, placed the plant in, and evened the soil out. This is my first time potting and growing nepenthes.
I placed them downstairs near the window to slowly break them in (very little direct sunlight). Temps are probably around 60 degrees, and the weather report says humidity is 78% for my area. The plants are in water trays with maybe a quarter inch of water in them (drained out from the soil mix, no tray watering).
The problem is that they're wilting. I did some searching online and found out that it's a sign of distress, but when I read the list of do's and don'ts for nepenthes, it seemed like everything a person needs to do to get a bareroot going is a don't, and that once they're wilting, they're as good as gone.
I know that growing bareroot nepenthes is not a good idea for a beginner, but the plants were given to me free of charge. I'd hate to see them go to waste. Any ideas?
