Got some sphagnum peat moss and perlite, mixed them up (about 1:1) and repotted my plant.
Placed it in the April sun, no more than 70 degrees.
I didn't have distilled water so i gave it the little bit of rain water i had lying around.
Within a day or two i saw most leaves started to turn black, so i got some distilled water from the market and watered it.
3 days after repotting I saw that the plant was almost dead, all but one leaves turned black and the last one is basically a 'budding' leaf that still looks green but looks like it has no strength left and lays on the ground. I'm sure it's not 'hungry' for flies, etc. and there are no 'viable' leaves on it anyway.
I tried to dig a little around the plant and found almost no root on it, but I do know that it can grow root from a stem cut too.
While searching I came across this forum where i saw that the supermarket peat moss is usually dried and needs to be soaked for a week before repotting. Sounds stupid but I probably didn't read the instructions very well.
My question is this: is there any chance of the plant for survival ? What are the best conditions for it so it at-least lives on?
-Indoors v/s outdoors?
-full sun ? morning v/s afternoon sun? partial shade?
-how frequent watering ? Atlanta temperature can vary drastically from 60 degrees and raining heavily to 80 degrees and blasting sun.
-I didn't cut the blackened leaves for fear of shaking and breaking the plant.. it looks too delicate currently.. only about 2 inches of one budding leaf there.
I know there are instructions online, but considering this plant is almost about to die, i want to see if there's something special I can do for it to live.. maybe sing a song to it
In hindsight, pretty stupid of me, even while watering I saw the water seemed to just disappear into the soil and the soil seemed too porous, didn't occur to me to check.
