As much as I hate to admit it, I about killed a heliamphora that Hollyhock sent me as a prize. I'm not sure how I did it, but I fried it. I cleaned it up, cut up what was left, put it in sphagnum and bagged it. I left it under lights for a few weeks and have started to see new growth. Now it is out of the bag and in the nursery tent. Hopefully it will continue to improve

Well, now I feel worse about the ones that I mistreated and couldn't revive, because I didn't act as quickly enough as you have. New growth is a great sign! I'm sure it will be back by EOS (end of season)! Good luck!
