    Miranda Burn

    To sum up whats going on as concise as possible, I had given my parents 2 large Mirandas to care for through the winter. With the warm weather arriving, I had them place one outside, but apparently they put it in a full sun location and it ended up with some pretty sever burn. Stupid mistake on my part not doing the move myself, but whats done is done and now both are outside, in a full sun location but situated underneath a tent. My question is, what can I do for the badly burnt one to help it recover? Is it too severe to come back?




    And some additional pics, including the other miranda :

    Move it to another location and it should be fine.

    Oh dude, no way that thing is going to die. It'll look a little crispy until it grows out again, but you'd be surprised how durable that species is.

    If the growth point looks all dandy on the nepenthes, you're still in business.

    My Miranda was a windowsill plant, a full-sun plant, a part shade outdoors plant, and now it's under lights just because I like looking at it when I'm on my computer. It literally has survived things some of my houseplants I bought from target haven't. I've also repotted it 2 times in the last 3 months to play around with media choice.

    When the foliage gets all crispy, just cut it back and I'm sure your plant's first instinct is to send out a basal or two to recover the foliage real quick so it'll send some light on down there for the basals.

    I can already see a basal on the bottom of the right vine in the first pic!

    No comment on what to do, I just don't know.

    Cut off every dead, yellow or dying leaf. It may make it look a little naked for now, but with those leaves gone it won't expend vital energy and moisture trying too save them, helping to speed recovery.
    Good growing, Jack

    I had never seen such burn and really thought it might've been too far. Big thanks to everyone for their input
