So my package finally arrived from Ireland. They seem to have taken a bit of a hit in 2 weeks of transportation so let's hope they will pull through. I think they will. They are snug in their new media now and under my lights for the moment and in the next few days ill slowly acclimatize them to the sun. I'll keep them a little wetter than normal until the roots develop also. I'll be a little gutted if they don't make it... I felt they cost me a kidney. :lol: :lol:

Yes, it's a good idea to practice a lot on stuff that's inexpensive and that you don't really care much about because there's a lot of loss in the beginning of learning TC techniques!

New additions arrived today from Klein's nursery in Germany. Super pleased with the quality of the plants and they threw in the UK Sawtooth as a gift which was pretty Fab!

From left to right, Bimbo, DCXL and UK Sawtooth II - Look that tap root, has anyone seen a root like this on a VFT?

Nepenthes Ventricosa x Mira all potted up, trying a little perlite mixed in the NZ-LSF in this one.

All potted up! time to slowly accustom them to the Spanish sun. Another bonus was having some flower stalks from them to try and propagate.

I was in the nursery yesterday where I buy my veggies seedlings and they had a few CPs. They looked in good condition and I loved the coloration on the VFTs. I asked for how long they had had them in and if they had watered them... They said they were just in and not been watered... so I bought it. Promptly took hit home, de-potted it and soaked it in clean RO water just in case, and re-potted it into my PC mix.

I know right! And for 4.50e I made a division also from it. I wish I could find out what clone it is for my reference. I'm trying to find out the supplier so I can contact them as that's the only way I can be 100% sure. It always hurt me to see CPs at garden centers knowing that they just going to wither and die...most of them just die at the center

I know! I always see VFT at Walmart half dead, and it hurts me. I would like to save them but I can't save them all. :(
