    What soil mix are you using? How much water do you give it? Your conditions sound fine to me.

    If you have some perlite on hand, try a 50/50 peat/ perlite mix. It sounds like the plant is in pure peat moss, which isn't good for the plant. Also, they generally don't like to be in standing water, so make sure yours is not standing in water. I top water my neps every day, and they do very well.

    Make sure you don't use sand as neps like a very airy mix. I would use 50/50 peat/perlite. What kind of light is your plant getting?
