    Problem

    My nepenthes hanging pot dropped from about a meter onto the ground today, it's a small Ventrata which is in about a 3 inch tall pot , anyway digestive juices were spiilt soil off the top was lost and basically now its sitting looking very sad missing about three quarters of a centimeters worth of soil and the plant itself seems a bit tilted, gave it a good spray with water to remove and digestive juices that might have spilt etc. Anyway will my Ventrata be ok,it isnt looking to happy , are they ressiliant to shock? Basically will it survive is what I'm asking .
    Thanks

    it will most likely survive.

    In my experience Nepenthes generally hate getting shocked like that. But in most cases they do survive, especially the larger they are. x ventrata is known for being vigorous and hardy. I would assume that your plant will survive, but may be a bit slow to pitched right after the fall.

    Things to check:
    Growth point still intact?
    Plant hasn't been uprooted?
    Main stem not snapped?

    If the answer to these are yes, then you should be fine. I have dropped a few plants before and they have been alright aside from one hamata that went into a 2 month shock. Movement in general seems to be ok. Shock can be worse from sudden climate changes.
    Have a wonderful day!
