    Hello all -
    Am new to this forum but would very much appreciate your advice.
    I ordered a Raven zz plant online from a supplier in the US, with a request to include a heat pack and expedited shipping. Unfortunately, I received it last night - with NO HEAT PACK!
    It was pretty limp. I took leaf cuttings and put them in water, in the faint hope I may somehow get some signs of life! They are in my grow tent at 60% humidity, moderate indirect light and at 24C.
    I know it's unlikely, but I have to try! You never know. But this is my first time trying to revive a zz. Any thoughts?

    What did you do with the rest of the plant? I don't have any relevant experience with this, but you may as well try to revive it. I'd be interested to hear if any of it survives.

    Potted the root in 50/50 moss and perlite. Put in the "plant hospital"= grow tent. Fingers crossed.
