    Hey guys, I need your help . I just got a sanguinea and khasiana off ebay from a grower who really can't take care of neps, as he grows them just like orchids. Really dry soil and I guess high humidity. Upon arrival, they had no soil around the poor little roots, so I soaked them in a 2 drop per cup solution of superthrive for about 2hrs, and then potted them up. The humidity has been high here, and the first morining after potting, I sprayed them with more superthrive. The sanguinea should be ok, but the poor khasiana is just having a bad time. The leaves have been sorta soft and wilted ever since I potted it. What could be wrong? This is the first time in a quite a while that I've had a nep go into shock, because of the poor source .

    Kepp in mind that khasiana is particularly sensitive when its roots are messed with, at least in my experience. Good luck!

    Cheers

    Yes, I second that. N. khasiana is a pain in the keister if the roots are screwed around with. Kepp very wet to allow tugor pressure to build again. If I let my established N. khasiana plants dry out for a short time they wilt very rapidly, but return easily.

    Thanks guys. I think the khasiana is finally starting to recover. It's regaining tugor pressure in its growth points which is a very good sign. The leaves have gotten very beat up, but hopefuly it'll start growing and making new ones with pitchers soon to follow [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] . Its been so long since I've had a N. khasiana, and I can't wait to see how this one compares to my old one [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] !
