The Gemmae arrived today.
Thank you very much!
A new species to grow!
It feels like Christmas!

Good growing,
Mike

Potted up the 12 Gemmae today.
They all look nice, plump, and healthy.
I used a 4 1/2 inch square, 5 inch deep pot.
Media is 1:1 peat:perlite.
I bagged the pot to aid humidity and trigger growth.
Now the waiting game begins.

Maybe next year I can do a Gemmae giveaway, or possibly sooner.
One of my Drosera scorpioides is showing a fat fuzzy swelling in the center at the growth point.

Thanks again Dustin!

Good growing,
Mike

The USPS loses so many of my packages (but only when the contents have a short shelf life). Last update was two days ago in another state. I hope they're okay when they finally make it. Glad Mike got his safely at least.

They are telling me it’s in Littleton CO. Hopefully you get them tomorrow. They should still be fine and if not I’ll send you some more. I’ve got plenty. Good luck.

Thank you again. I don't understand why we're showing different information in the tracking. Weird. Mine still shows Beaumont. I'm sure they'll be okay but thanks so much for the offer.

Delivered today! Thanks again so much, Dustin. I'll post updates when there's something to post. Again, really excited and really thankful for your generosity. I've always wanted pygmy sundews!

Yeah the get mixed up so much at the postal service. I sent some gemmae to Hawaii the other day in a Tuesday and they arrived that Thursday. But I send stuff a few states over and it takes 4 days. Crazy.
