    Hi Guys,
    My two neps above suffered severe shipping shock...They really don't look too good...anyone know anything I can do to increase their survival likelihood? I have them in typical highland conditions (very humid, warm days, cool nights), and they get 6 hours of diffused sunlight and then the rest of the day is bright shade.

    Should I try a superthrive treatment? Orchid fertilizer (weak, obviously)? Just patience (this might kill ME instead, lol)?

    I would soak in superthrive and sit on my hands. Patience is the key to shocked plants.
