    I find the brown tip of the growth point most troubling as well as the brown blotch on the leaf at the top of the picture. I am guessing damage from?? transit?? How long have you had the plant? If it's damage and a pathogen has gotten into the plant tissue and it continues to spread then there probably isn't much you can do. If the brown has not continued to spread further then you are probably ok if you just let the plant settle in and do it's thing. N. macrophylla is a slow growing plant. Particularly one so tiny will take a long long time to recover..
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Thank you !!!

    Thank You!
    For all the good advice and suggestions.

    Perhaps what she needs most,
    being so small...
    is for me to be patient with her
    and simply let her have time to recover.

    I hope so!

    Again, I do appreciate your help!
    Thank you all!

    If I can, I will post again in the future on this,
    hopefully with good news and a picture of
    my healthy, thriving little Macrophylla girl!

    Paul,

    I can only really suggest what I'm doing to my Macro. As you saw the setup, my temp drops are not very drastic, maybe 8 degrees here in summer, 10 to 12 if I'm lucky here in the heat.

    I leave just that little lids on my smaller neps though. I try to have a wind current at all times around my neps, but I think for small ones like these it's too much especially since they are just walking out of flasks. I don't feel these dime sized ones can barely take any fluctuation.

    Also I just water mine roughly 2 times a week. Goal is to keep it moist but def not soggy.

    How are you applying the frozen packs? Perhaps the cool packs are making things dip too rapidly or too far, especially if it's changing the soil temp. (ie the plant is sitting on the pack)

    Recovering!

    Hi Again,

    My N.Macro girl is indeed beginning to recover! At least thus far things are looking good.
    Even in just a week in my Highland Terrarium with consistant environmental conditions is apparently having a good effect on her. A new leaf is enlarging already and is looking pretty good.



    She still appears rather anemic, however she seems to be a tough little Macro after all.

    BigBella, your little N.Villosa and it's progress is certainly amazing! A real demonstration of the vigor and fortitude of these plants. Even the micro-mini juveniles are proving to be tough little plants, when given the right conditions!

    Seems the best condition she needed beside a nice new Terrarium,
    was my being patient with her!

    Thanks again to all of you.
    Paul

    good to hear that it has recovered. that is truly an expensive plant and one of the most cherished and wanted species among all CP's. WOW bigbella. How long did it take for that villosa to grow to that size?? (comparing pic 1 and 2). Almost all plants available seem to be the size of the plant in your first pic.
