    My Copelandii Nep is looking pretty sad.I got it about a week ago,and it had nice green leaves,now they're turning all brown [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] I have it in my mini greenhouse outside.The lowest temp here is 5C and the highest temp has been 17C.I water with distilled water.Is it just in shock?Did I do something wrong? *Niki* (Trapper7)

    Did you keep it shaded for a few days after potting it up? If not, it might have went into shock...

    Cheers,

    I'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean by "how wet?".I have a one of those lid things under it that I keep the water in,so it's always got water.*Niki*

    is it standing in water via the "tray method" ? if so I woudl take it out of that. Depending on how deep the pot is standing water can be a bad thing. Neps don't like to be standing in water they like an airy substrate.

    Thats part of the problem, overly wet roots. Let the soil dry out for a few days. Watering Nepenthes, via the tray method, is a big no-no, unless its a swampy species. N. copelandii is a highland species and it absolutely hates to have its feet wet.
