Some time back I posted a message about my dieing N.maxima plant.
It went very brown looking during a cold patch in late December and lost all its leaves and pitchers [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
I have had it almost 13 years (unlucky for some [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] ) and it had its best growth last summer. The night time temp was not that cold and it had certainly tolarated colder over the years. I decided to bring it indoors and try a number of cuttings. I them placed the pruned back plant and cuttings in my indoor Highland tank. The cuttings have all gone brown and shrivelled! Although I have had reasonable success with Nep cuttings over the years, this particulary Nepenthes has not been one of them!
The plant was repotted to examine the roots. A number of black and several newer white ones. The bulk of the growth is old & woody. A remaining stem is still sending out new growth but it is very small and quite stressed looking. And I see tiny spores of mold appearing on the ends of previously cut off woody leaf ends. I know that Nepenthes can hang on till the last minute before finally keeling over. But as this was my first ever Nepenthes I do so want to save it.. Any suggestions?
