    New Nepenthes sibuyanensis

    Hey guys,


    I don't buy new plants often, since space for me is pretty limited, but I did just order a N. sibuyanensis. It's one I've wanted for a while now, and I was very excited when it showed up! To be honest, though, I'm a bit disappointed in the condition it came in. I'm sure I can bring it back and it'll be happy (it has a large, healthy root stock), but I'm a little surprised they shipped a plant in this condition out. What do you think? I don't think I'll buy from them again...

    How it came (unpacked)

    After a quick repot, soaking up some super-thrive water


    I know these guys like to bury their tendrils to pitcher well, but I'll take care of that when it looks a little less like death.

    Thanks for looking,
    CJ

    Looks like that thing needs to be quarantined. Keep an eye out for pests..

    Would you suggest a neem-oil spray then? For the "notorious" nurseries I spray without question, but I didn't think I'd have to for this place...

    Hmm did you order from a nursery? Maybe you could get an exchange.

    If it weren't for mites being the potential problem, I'd say use imidacloprid. Other than that, yeah, neem is pretty effective all around, just keep it out of high light for a bit if you use it.

    im surprised they would send a plant out like that as well....
    deplorable....

    that being said, it can recover. you can let that growth point continue, or you can cut it off and encourage basal formation (you did say that it had a healthy root stock). like others said, keep an eye out for pests, and i would also suggest that you bag the plant, and slowly acclimate it to your conditions.

    Wow looks pretty bad! I'd just demand a rebate or decent replacement plant. Send 'em a link to your post here.
