was it re potted at all , and nep's, can do unusual things when it has a change of environment , all so check you TDS in your water ? PH of the mix , it may just be sulking too , it happens here as well when I get plants from sub tropical to temperate , they often go back ward for a few months till they adapt . but do the checks first just in case

thank you for reply, I use rainwater for all my collection (I live countryside) and I use a mix of acid peat 30% (pH 3-3,5), bark 40% and 30% perlite.

so I wait some month because the plant will adapting, right?

but is normal sometime the tip of apex dryes?

normal mite be stretching it, its not uncommon for a nep to be stressed in transport to another growing area . as far as growth dying off, I am not or would not be happy about that at all , for me here in AU I would be putting in a very sunny spot for recovery, all the plants I see in the wild that grow best are in very open sunny positions , so I just follow what is see in Nature or wild .

thank you, unfortunately the plant begin to dry more leafs , I give water all days because there is not saucer, I will try to increase the humidity.

I thought that plant was more easy but it is hard (maybe is the clone more delicate)
