    Will it live or will it die?

    Well....

    I got a nep in the mail today and the growing point was popped clean off during shipment. Here are a few pics..





    The smallest "cutting" ever:


    I'm usually pretty optimistic, but I think this particular plant has no chance at all.

    What do you guys think?

    Sure. It looks like it'll be just fine. Don't worry about it.The large one has many nodes that can activate, and the smaller one looks like it has a good chance.

    The roots look healthy but... I'm prepared for the worst.

    Are they both northiana? Northiana is extremely hard to root, IMO. I tried about 5 times and failed every time. Good luck
    Also, it tends to be finicky, even once established, so if they both die, I wouldn't be surprised.
