Very cool Dub, you will get to test out the plants before I do. Mine should be shipping in a few days so they arrive when I get home from vacation. I'm glad you two could work out a deal to get a custom lot.

Yes! It's basically nothing. (Under 2 bucks)

well it depends on the size of the order. Shipping is a % of the total, but even for my $40 purchase, shipping was only like 6 bucks.

Any place else charges at least 6 to 10 bucks. And more for the plants. My new sarracenia is already putting up a new leaf. :D

My plants arrived today, I asked the owner to please hold them, but he mailed them early anyways while I am still on vacation. Luckily my dad is home, he is going to plant them for me, but I am a bit low on perlite... I can only hope it will all work out. I will be home in a few days to try to take care of them.

Uh oh. Maybe he misunderstood? But it was a good thing someone was there even though you ordered bulk. You should have a good surprise when you return.

dont get your hopes up with your order shimizoki... it comes in the smallest box possible and most of the plants looked half dead lolz. but i potted them and well here they all are and i got 2 butterworts no pic yet but they looking fragile too!
and let me tell you planting them in pots wasnt fun this time for some reason. it was hard.

well what do you think
the sundews were so hard to plant there was like no roots and they looked like they been alive for a long time cus they had flower stalks well dead ones that bruce probly cut off?
does anyone know if or when they will get more?

Well they're not huge, but they look very nice for the price Dubstep. Are those VFT's the "Medium" option? They look nice!

Those don't look that bad. I have yet to see a sundew still look nice after being shipped bareroot. I may have to give it a try soon. Sounds like a great deal! :D
