Is it hopeless for my d. adelae?
I started this little adventure about a month ago when I purchased a d. adelae from sarracina southwest, another d. adelae from lowes, and a n. miranda from a local grocer. Miranda is doing GREAT and I'm just getting ready to move her to a better pot than the one she came in. the SSW adelae was half eaten the 2nd day I had it by my stupid cat. However, the leaves he didn't taste have grown, though there is no dew yet. I haven't seen any new growth either, but hey...it's only been a month. The one I'm worried about is the d. adelae from lowes. I think I may have shocked it to death by being impatient and only allowing it to adjust to room humidity (hovers around 40-50% depending on weather) for a week by gradually opening the cube before transplanting it into its current pot. All my cps are on a shelf by the window that gets the most sun, albeit indirect because I have a heavily shaded lot. I've followed the watering guidelines on this forum and am using only distilled water. The potting medium is what was recommended by SSW. Temps range from 70-78F. The lowe's adelae has gone completely brown but is not crispy with no signs of new growth. I guess my question is how long before I should expect to see something happening before I give up? I understand these guys are pretty bomb proof so I want to give the little guy a fair chance :)
I also just got a nepenthes something or other from lowes yesterday. He's awful cute, and I'll try to be more patient with acclimating him :)
Here's some pics (from my cell on a cloudy day, so sorry if they aren't the best):

Any advice you guys may have would be great! Thanks!
