A year ago I got this nep for a dollar. I had low expectations of having it survive and with my limited knowledge of neps, it looked like a good challenge. We all learn from failure just as we learn from success so I knew I would come out ahead whether it lived or died. After about 6 weeks the plant started going downhill fast, and not ready to accept defeat, I removed the growth tip and placed it in live sphagnum moss after dipping it in rooting hormone. A plastic cup was put over it and it was left to do whatever in a bright area of my enclosure. The original plant never recovered and was lost.
This pic was taken last December. It was growing in a 1" container with a small amount of peat and finely chopped cedar bark with a layer of sphagnum on top. The largest pitcher was about 3/8" tall.
Today it lives in a 4" pot and I believe it's safe to say that the plant is going to make it. The largest pitcher is about 2-1/4" tall. I'll never cease to be amazed at how carnivorous plants have such a strong will to survive.
