    hey all, i received my baby ventrosica that nepenthes lover sent to me. when i got it it had 6--7 green leavs, and it was small, no pitchers, and the growth point was black! the middle of the plant where new leafes come from turned black, i have it in my terrarium now and all the leafs turned black. 1 green leaf remains and half a leaf is greenish brownish, i really hate to see things die.
    and i feel kinda guilty cus i said i would help the ven back to life, but now i think i killed it

    well the midle is black, any ideas if it will grow agian?

    its really small, like 4" across is the plant from leaf to leaf



    any ideas if itll start to grow agian?

    Maybe because the growth point died, its gonna grow a new one, but the rest is dying because its sending all other energy to producing a new plant...

    If the tip is dead, maybe you should cut it off? I think that would prevent any fungus problems. Just an idea...

    Hmm, yes, and if possible, remove any EXCESS humidity... I mean, any unescasarry stagnant air with bacteria filled water may be harmful. Maybe leave a crack open on both sides of the tank allowing airflow, but nothing breeze like...
