Hey everyone. Yesterday my two Nepenthes Argentii plants (size s) arrived, with its leaves and growth points blackened. It came moist, as it was shipped in a ziplock bag, and I saw some white dots of mold on the leaves. Only the roots looked sort of healthy. I soaked their roots in water for about an hour, cleaned the mold, and covered it in a ziplock bag before potting it. I've seen cases where an almost-dead plant comes back to its roots. The stem itself has traces of leaves, and I'm sure that there could still be some dormant growth points. Is there any possibilty of this poor plant coming back to life via basal or something? I'm keeping it out of light, in high humidity (80%-90%) and in a lfs/perlite/lava rock mix.
this is my N. 'rebecca soper' which has been growing very well for the past three months or so since I got it, if not pitchering, producing but a single one for me. However, whilst having a closer inspection of the pot I notices that it's sent up not one but two new shoots! (the two on the outside of the 4 now growing the larger one: and the newest one: now, my question really is what the hell should I do about this? having 4 seperate plants in a pot just shy of 4" can't be good for the health of them all, so how would I go about dividing them all up? (should I need to go down that route)
