    and not true glider, ive seen many activated nodes come from woody stems of plants,
    but it does sometimes happen.
    haha ive had nodes come from a woody stem before. its just more frequent from the green parts.

    Some of the misconception may be that activating nodes from cuttings is more difficult than plants activating them themselves while during normal growth.

    If you do decide to keep it, I would certainly isolate it so the fungal spores don't infect your other plants. That would not be good.

    So what did the plant below the soil look like when you repotted?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Any suggestions for treatment? How do I isolate the plant when the terrarium filled with other plants is the only vacant spot. I had a spot on my window, (plant still would not be isolated) and that is now taken up.

    Rearrange everything. Or just throw it out since some have said it's dead.

    I'm sorry I didn't catch that. It had plenty of roots looked really good growing in a mass/ball kinda but all growing down and outward. I did not see any white everything was black or just really really dark brown.

    Is it a disease that will only affect nepenthes? would placing the bag back over the nepenthes help stop it from spreading?

    I am not sure if it is disease, the plant arrived in good shape with one leaf damaged, it was after arrival that the plant started to decline. I think it might have been an extreme case of shock. None of my nepenthes have any pest/diseases so it could not have gotten it from another plant.

    Oh and I hope you find your nepenthes.

    disease isnt always a specific organism or catalyst. to me it looks like root rot. if the roots are dead. there is no hope for the plant. placing a bag over it would make it worse.

    How long have you had this plant since you recieved it from wherever you bought it? If you still feel that it's relatively new, you should contact the nursery and let them know about it. I'm sure they would be willing to give you a refund or replacement plant.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
