    As I said before, I'm a CP novice, but I've managed/owned greenhouses all my life, and your discription sends up a red flag for fungus. I would spray the low rate of any non-copper fungicide at the lower recommended rate, then wait a week, and repeat.

    schloaty, look in the aquarium section of the store for activated charcoal. It will likely be in with the filter stuff.

    Hi,

    when uprooting the plant I would recommend carefully washing away the old soil completely. If there is a build up of salts, etc. which the plant dislikes, you do get rid of this problem this way. The root system of a Nepenthes is very fragile and it is not as easy to spot if they are damaged or not. So if the plant does not recover in few days you might consider treating it like an cutting. Pack the leafes in a layer of Sphagnum with the newest rosette of leafes lying direct on the moss. This way the plant has time to develop new roots without risking of drying out, as the plant will get water through its leafes.

    Good luck!

    Joachim

    Looks like there was a root problem....Almost no roots! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]
    So I have re-potted in the new suggested soil mix. Before I stuck it in the new soil, I did clean off some of the remaining root....there was some gook. Anyway, we'll see what happens.

    It should do fine from here. My N. x Judith Finn had the same thing happen. When I repotted it, there were absolutely no roots. So, I put it in the pot of sphagnum with my truncata, and their both doing well. The sad thing is, I bought the thing two years ago, and it's only less than 4" in diameter [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] . Haveto wait another year or two for it to reach a good size. I really don't like x Judith Finn.......
