Ok guys, sorry I didn't get the plants shipped yesterday (I got a trampoline and that took up the entire afternoon :D ). They are all packed up and I will ship today!

I get the jump the gun since I was able to pick up my plants in person. They are bigger than I was expecting and look great! I may have broken the rear pitcher on the H. minor when I was potting though. :oops: Now to keep them covered for a few weeks to see how long it takes them to recover from their journey. I did discover that quart ziplock bags almost perfectly fit over round 4 inch pots.

Glad to hear your bagging them off. Takes me about 2 months to get helix aclimated.

Neps are usually quicker.

Nice plants.

These are my first helis so I did a lot of reading and should be prepared. I'm just hoping that I can get them acclimated to ambient humidity later on and that they don't heat up too much while bagged under the lights.

Give the ones that are the worst extra humidity for awhile.

They will be fine. I have had several come in that way myself.

Chimentensis, Cilliata, and akopan have been relatively fast growers for me

Excellent choices.

Good looking plants! As Cory said, just give them some extra humidity and they should be fine. I usually kept new Heliamphora bagged for 2 weeks as they adjusted.

I'm so happy to finally have some Macros now! Thanks Charlie for making this possible!
@ KissMegan - Your Helis look really good! (especially Neblinae ;) ) Don't worry about your Glabra, it should recover just well!
