    I've never aclimated a nep like that unless its a cutting or something that has been in bag humidity for a long time. I usually just put them right in there.

    Same here if it goes into my terrarium but I take it slow when going from high humidity, tissue culture, seedling, or cuttings to a windowsill plant in very low humidity. All we know is that the plant (whatever size it may be) is in a converted porch sunroom with 85-90F daytime, 55-65F night, & decent airflow. The bag may be doing more harm than good if its already a well established plant.

    The "elephant in the room" are your temps. You're attempting to keep HL species far too warm. Ideally, you want day temps of 75-80 with a night drop of 50-55 with humidity at 70% at a bare minimum. There are few HL species that can withstand day temps into the 90's for very long and even 85 is really pushing it for most. Intermediate species or hybrids are far better suited to the conditions you're providing. The leaf curling often signifies a root issue as well.

    Itsonly a baby plant its about 2 to 3in leaf span..well it was until yhey shrivled up and curled..
    It was doing fine with the bag completely open for days and i think i jumped the gun on it assuming it was ready and even though i misted it within 2 hours it was a curled up sad looking thing with deflated soft pitchers. Im hoping it will make it like the N. Gentle did.

    Yes knuckles my phone has a funny way of changing words that i want to say into words it assumes i want to say lol! But i wish i had a problem like that! To many ramispinas thst would be great! Hahaha. Thank u for yr advice i may try poking holes first then slowly open the bag once it puts out some new growth that isnt fragile.

    Our growing area in case your wondering is a greenhouse type sun porch with big double side windows which open to let air flow in, gets plenty of light during the day and afternoon thru different windows. I had slowly opened the bags over some time and placed them in a window that gets partial sun during the day and partial shade as the day goes on. I must have jumped the gun but i looked around on the form and saw someone else having the same problem with their ramispina so maybe they are very fussy at times who knows. But nowvibgot a slightly crispy talangensis i gatta nurse back as well ...ahrg! This is exactly why my name is Katastrophe cause my life can be just that!

    the temps i gave are a estimate usually we see nothing above 80 at times in my house as opposed to the sunporch greenhouse is alot cooler then inside but the temps frequently rise and fall day to day in summer usually nothing below 75 unless its night time where 50-55 would be the norm. Winter time is when they come inside cause they wpuld freeze to death with our weather! The other highlanders are healthy and happy except this little guy. I think i jumped the gun and rushed him out of the bag to soon thinking it would be okay like some of the others...bad judgement on my part ..ahrg!
    Hopefully it will bounce back in some time, its growth point seems fine putting out its new green stem healthy looking at the moment so i think im gonna let it get some good growth back on it and try to re acclimate it to the sunporch greenhouse again. Thank u for your response
