Hello all, I've just returned from a ten day vacation in Korea.
While I was away, my parents were watering my neps for me, and they were pleased to let me know that it had been raining every day so there was nothing to worry about.
When I got home today, I went to check my plants, with full confidence that they would be in the pink of health.
Each pot weighed about 5g. The water in the sphagnum evaporated in one (mildly hot) day, and in that short period of time I lost about six pitchers, and many of the leaves are suffering as well.
I've just given them immediate water shock therapy (read: generous amounts of rainwater) and am hoping for the best. I hate to think what will happen while I am away on military service for the next two years.
In another news, I am about to go on a trip to Cameron Highlands (Malaysia) and am planning to do some nepenthes hike-and-seek. Anyone know if I'll be able to find any?
