Ok so I was just sitting at my computer (as always) and my dogs started barking so I looked out the window and yelled "MAIL!" and the mail lady sat a big box down on my porch and I practically flew out the door and grabbed it. Though I wanted to tear the box to shreads I let my step brother open it, as soon as the tape was cut I ripped it open and pulled out my little Nepenthes Sanguinea "orange pitchers" from Cook's Carnivorous Plants! YAY! It is looking really good except for a few things that I'm paranoid about and decided to ask if it was okay.
There are these little brownish markings on some of the leaves and I was just wondering if they were okay to be there? It's not like..diseased or anything is it?!
When I took it out I untwisted a few of the leaves and took the little cap off of the pot and put it outside in the shade. It was really hot yesterday so I didn't want to overdo it with the sunlight. I stuck it in a VERY SHALLOW tray of distilled water and I also sprinkled some cool water overhead.
I just checked it a little while ago and it looks fine, I actually think I have a new pitcher! It's really small compared to another pitcher that's on it but it's still a pitcher! WOOO! I think it's planted in pure Live Sphagnum Moss.
So what does everyone think? Is it okay? It's not gonna be dead in a week is it? I'm soooo paranoid because I may have overestimated the difficulty of growing neps even though I got one of the easiest to grow! Oohhh man, someone please put my paranoia and worries to rest. x.x I think I need to stare at it for a bit to make sure it's not slowly crumpling up or something like that....
