    One of my new neps (thank god not the hamata) leaves are turning black/ yellowish along with the one I got from work a couple weeks ago. What should I do? Should I call and send it back or can I fix this without losing the plant? What could the problem be? Would it be caused by shipping? I had it 2nd day U.P.S. What would you do?

    Root rot from the roots being too wet.

    Not enough air flow around the plants.

    Repot it in fresh LFS and while the plant is out of the pot flush out the roots.

    The plant is potted in some kind of bark chips.

    Why would it be root rot if this is a good mixture? Someone told me that stright LFS is not that good because it can stay too wet and cause the roots to rot.
