Can't say the same for my Nancy's revenge, however. Got this at the same time but it was damaged in transit and despite the warm cossetting it shrivelled its way to dormancy and then the corm shrivelled to nothing. Would like to take my revenge out on the carrier! I think your Nancy will respond with warm TLC, however.
Where did you get the Nancy's revenge from? Would like to try one.
I got mine from Amulree in their sale. Still not sure that's what it is though!

HTUK member, acphm did have them for sale so you could pm him Rob! icon_thumleft

Rob, my Nancy was also courtesy of the Amulree sale. Think it's on their website for this year.

I have a plant on order from them already so I will likely add it to my order.

Looks like we have progress today! icon_cheers

All I have done is push the pot up against the radiator to give it some heat.

Looked at the 'Nancy's revenge' this morning and it also is trying to push out a leaf! I thought I was going to loose them both! icon_thumbdown

Wouldn't that risk the new leaf?

Not it you are carefully and cut around it as close to the base as possible.......try and ease the new leaf out first if possible....

Thanks again for the advise. I took off the old leaf by hand this morning using my thumbnails. It was like shelling peas! :lol:
No damage to new leaf I think!

Now looking very promising! icon_cheers
I'll tidy it up a bit more when the leaf has emerged properly.
