    As long as the leaf is green, you might as well keep it on. As for pitchers, I cut them off only after they've totally died (browned). Keeping them on after they've totally died is asking for trouble (especially if you are growing it in a terrarium), as fungus/mold love growing on dead matter in a humid, enclosed environment.

    Congratulations, Tracey! As Capslock said, they can easily remain in shock for awhile. Stable conditions and adequate lighting & drainage will bring them around eventually. Like Capslock, I keep my Neps in hanging baskets, and water them once a day, allowing water to drain, normally into other CP pots. As Chloroplast says, green is good (how appropos for Chlorplast comment about green!) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Thanks everyone greatly apreciate the help. Im gona cut off the little all brown wilted picther, not the leaf its on since its green, but the leaf i was asking about was completly broken off away from the plant when i opened the package and took it out of the little bag it was wraped in. So i took that broken leaf off and stuck it in the potting mix/spag, its staying green even though its not attached to anything is this good?? Hopefully in a month or so it will be doing much better from its trip and getting cold.. It had a few hrs of natural sunlight today and is now back under the lights since it got dark. Other than the damaged pitchers and broken leaf its doing very well has perked up alot since yesterday. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]
