    Hi
    Earlier this year I posted a topic on my sicky N. veitchii x lowii.
    It looked like that them:



    Now after a repot, trim and relocating to a harsher part of my greenhouse [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] it looks like this. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]



    This pitcher is actually the brown pitcher tip at the top of the previous photo. The next new leaf is far bigger and developing nicely. My motto "Never say die" has worked again!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img]


    cheers

    Very nice Bill,

    I remember the picture, but what was concluded to be the problem back when you first posted?

    Thats a great recovery. Did you use any growth enhancers? Also you need to post a picture of the entire plant, that would be awesome.... LOL [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    ?WOW! Great recovery! It was thought that his plant had a viral infection. Personally I was leaning toward nitrogen deficency a bit. Did it turn out to be a root rot problem?

    I think repotting the plant helped a lot, it had some but not many roots. But I think the increased light level and more open surroundings produced the biggest boost to the plant.

    I tend to grow most of my Neps under harder conditions now, and most repond with better growth than before.

    I will post another photo when the next pitcher opens.

    cheers

    Deffinately some sort of mineral defficiency/defficiencies.

    Repotting apparently has helped. Has the plant been able to catch more food in it's new location?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Yes it should be able to catch a few more passing insects. But it was the compost change coupled with increased light that did the trick I think.
