    Unhappy

    Hey all. My recently acquired ephippiata is suffering. Although humidity is now stabilized, I had some problems with my new enclosure. As a result, many leaves have curled up and turned papery (they are still green).

    Should I clip them off? They don't seem to be getting any better and I don't think they can still help the plant. Thanks in advance.

    I say don't clip them off if its green, esp. not near the growing tip. Similar thing happened to few of my Neps (e.g. albomarginata), one of its leaves curled under the plant and produced a pitcher which is now sitting on the growing tip. Strangely enough the pitcher has lasted for about 5 months now... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Keep the leaves. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] The least they can do is to make food and help the plant tide over the current situation.

    I agree with everyone so far. I would keep the leaves on the plant just so photosynthesis can still take place. It can only help your plant!

    Let's see if I can get a pic because I think people may have misunderstood the symptoms.
