    At what point do you give up hope?

    I'm curious about when you guys give up on a nepenthes that has gone completely brown?
    I was given 4 neps a few months back to revive, only two made it but the other two were far gone and have turn completely brown. I was under the impression that once there isn't any green, there isn't a chance its coming back. Am I right in this?
    I still have them, theyre brown, but haven't dried out, still supple. Should I toss and move on?

    Some neps can come back from the living tissure in the center of the stem long after everything else goes brown. I'd say it's likely they're gone, but you never know...
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Hold on to them for a while. Need a reason? Read this link:

    best of luck!
    Edit: The URL link is blocked. @#%$!!!!
    Anyway, seemingly dead neps have been known to revive over eight months after "dying", so I would hold onto them for at least a year before throwing them out.

    Nope. Still good. Throw out when limp or crispy.
