Most tropical drosera do fine when they are bare root shipped. However, they are more prone to root damage/rot. In most cases, they are fine. If you so choose to buy it, I would recommend soaking the roots in RO or distilled water for 15 minutes to half an hour. Best wishes!

I disagree. D. burmannii has fairly long roots that are easy to break. Once they get past a certain size, it isn't wise to transplant them. However, if the roots are shipped intact in the media and not 100% bareroot, then the plant should be fine.

I'm not sure if you set your eyes on burmannii but this listing is for 3-4 plants which comes potted. I prefer potted or barefoot any day.

Their roots are quite thin and long, and can easily break. It's also prone to root rot. From my experience, I wouldn't choose the vendors who won't ship them in pots.
