That great guys, good luck with your plants. Be sure to unpack and handle 'em very gently. Not a bad idea to have some water on hand to place them in between steps.
It would be so nice to start a new political party. Maybe name it, The Tea Party II for Americans, not racist anti-American douches that hate their neighbors? We need to reform our politics, not make them more partisan and dumber.
I have not y et but don't expect it until later this week. If you got the same mail I did (and you are in the US), Wistuba's mail indicated shipment to the distributor. Although he would have gotten it (presumably) last week, there was a minor fiasco a year or two ago where things got held in the post office over a weekend because it took just a little longer, so I think he tries to ship toward the beginning of the week to keep that from happening as much as possible.
Thank you for the well wishes Dave....with the $ i invested....Im hoping they settle in well here. Thinking medium sized pots so I ownt need to xplant for a while and use plastic bags for a week or o to allow them to adjust.
thank you mantis I am not one to complain until I have failed in pulling them back from deaths doorstep. I am hoping they will pull through but if not perhaps I cna get a replacement mailed with my upcoming order.
I'm not sure my pictures would be of that much help. You look like you got mostly stage 3 plants except for H. sarraceniodes, which I managed to get a stage 3 last year. All of mine are small (so immature pitchers) except for a very large H. sp. "Angasima" which I actually didn't order this time; it was a compensation for some shipping and other issues last year (like having things stuck in the PO over the weekend).
I find that the quality & size depends mostly on how easy it is for him to grow, and, of course, the demand, and how long it's been in culture. If you get something the first year it's out, it's inevitably difficult to deal with (small and expensive). As you ordered minors and hybrids, they are large. The burgundy black may not be so large; mine is still very small although it does have adult-form pitchers (although nothing near my normal but much older H. minor). Since I ordered things like H. uncinata, it was small, although better than last year. H. hispida is always small and I have no idea whether or not I will have success this time.
