It should be set for next week but who knows with international shipping.

I believe that they have (or had idk by now) one up for around $60 or so. Still a deal.

Yeah, it’ll be interesting to see how this comes in. Especially since this was so cheap. Only time will tell I guess.

I got a tatei too while I was at it, so I can update when it gets here also. Fwiw at least, the picture showed one with a couple small adult pitchers which seems about right for the non-sale price of 29€

Ooooh, I love tatei. Probably my favorite species in the genus as of rn. Just didn’t want to spend above $40 with it being out of state and first time ordering from him and all. Definitely give us an update too.

@Sundews69, if you want Sarracenioides, I might have some in the far future for trade (me playing with keiki paste and all) that is, if you don’t have one by then.
Sure, I would love to do a trade in the future!

Just came in! From shipping to arrival it took 11 days roughly. It literally came in the second I was about to leave so will update soon with potting.

Just realized that Heliamphora sticker is based off of a picture taken by another enthusiast. That’s awesome!

Any recommendations for potting media?

Nice, I'd been thinking about checking in to see how long shipping was taking, but I finally got an email yesterday that mine was going to be packed and shipped today with a 5-7 day estimate. Hopefully it won't take 11 at least being on the east coast, but good to see it looks like it's in good shape despite it though.

I know a lot of people use some exotic mixes including pumice, akadama, etc, but I usually use 50/50 lfs/perlite with good results. I trust that mix enough to pot my macdonaldae in it at least. Fwiw though my best plant by far is in whatever Nancy Martens sent it in, but I have no idea what the mix was or whether it was due to it or if it's just an extremely vigorous plant.

Nancy's mix is a mixture of lfs, fluval, extra fine bark, coarse perlite and turface. She doesn't measure it out and just eye balls it.

Yep, I hope yours comes quick too! Me being even more east coast than you, I hope mine was just a fluke. Since I don’t really have any special potting media rn I’m going to just do 1/1 lfsm/perlite.

Here are some pictures:
Very nice. Planted in live moss.

While I was writing that I was actually wondering it you might know. Interesting, I never looked that close and assumed it was more boujee components, but that's pretty reasonable. I'll probably start incorporating turface going forward now at least, had considered it before and figured it was most likely safe, just hadn't seen it mentioned around enough for helis to bother trying.
