Hello! I am new to this board and came here for a specific reason. My baby Pitcher plant, which I have been taking care of for a little over 6 months, was given distilled white vinegar on accident by my house sitter while I was away. She 'watered' it on Thursday (6/18) but I arrived home Sunday (6/21) and didn't find out till then. Upon realizing what had happened I poured probably 3x the amount of distilled water I usually use to water it to shock it and hopefully dilute the system. But I have not been able to find any resources online about the affects or danger of vinegar for Nepenthes. Please Please Please let me know what I can do to save my plant. Thank you so much!

If anyone is curious, it took several days before the vinegar made its way through my plant. Turning its vine a dark brown and killing off all the pitchers. I made a last ditch effort and cut off the still green vines at the ends and am now attempting propagation. Here's a tip: make sure if you hire a friend to water your plants while you're away they can read the difference between "distilled white vinegar" and "distilled water".
thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
