to "bring it back to life"?
A few months ago one of my "dead" neps (dried totally brown) suddenly sent out a shoot (NOT a weed because it has pitchers), and I'm stunned cuz this have never happened to me before, despite all the neps which have perished under my care... . Should I cut off the stem of the already wilted brown plant like my brother said I should, or just leave it alone to bud by itself (if there are still are living veins in it, that is.) Oh yeah, the topmost "fresh" shoot the bical was sending out is still a little dull green. Does that help the situation?
My bical was just starting to send out a pitcher (from a tendril), but then my newbie care got the better of it and it sort of wilted, but I don't think the problem was due to lack of water...or it may have been...it was raining all week but there were some dry periods in between, could have dried out then. Have to find a way to get it to send out a green shoot...my other nep did this after it "died"...probably had some living cells in its stem, hope my bical does too. Does anyone know how I can induce the bical to produce a new shoot from a dried out stem? Should I cut it, and if so, where? Is there any source which I can get info from eg.books, websites etc?
I have to hurry otherwise it WILL totally "die".
