Hey everyone

Today, my 2 N. argentiis got delivered, and to my demise, they came all blackened, growth point and all, except for the roots. As the plants came bare root in a ziplock bag, they were moist, but I saw some white dots of rot on the dead leaves. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I soaked their roots (the only healthy part remaining) in water for an hour, and I potted them, hoping for a miracle.

I've read that there are cases where the almost-dead plant comes back to its roots.
Also, the plants had 3-4 cm long woody stems, with traces of leaves, which I'm sure that they have dormant growth points.

Is there any hope of these plants coming back to life via basal or whatever :| ?

I'm keeping them out of light and in high humidity for now...

Side note: I find your username a little ironic for this situation :lol:

I do think you should try to get a refund or something like that.
