Yours took like 8 sq ft of bubble wrap to pack lol, the helis Kamil sent were really chunky. Btw if anyone ordered rare plants (e.g. H. pulchella, dictator vfts) they came as TC'd clumps so you'll have a lot of potting to do.

Hey w03 just wanted to check, how did the P. pumila look? I hear that they are sensitive to shipping, and plus they are apparently an annual so I don't know how far into its life cycle it is.

I'm actually both excited and dreading the day the package arrives. I'm a meticulous plant-potter, so it usually takes me an hour or two just to pot a dozen plants! Needless to say, I will be keeping some of these plants as clumps :lol:

Did I already say that earlier?

What?! Do you mean the dictator vfts are in TC containers? Or they have just got out of it not for long, so still in clumps? Either way, that sounds like a lot of plants ^_^, and a longer period for acclimating...

I was fine until I seen this, now I'm bouncing off the walls in anticipation!

Thanks! And I got your earlier email, I have your plants packed and ready to go.

And as for the TC'd clumps, they're not in containers and they have peat on the roots so it looks like they've already been hardened off a bit but they are definitely still clumpy like TC plants.

Thanks w03! Good to know that! I just have a whole bucket LFSM soaked and washed. And a couple dozen pots in different size prepared. It is going to be a long night tomorrow(or the day after tomorrow) :D And w03, have you sent out the tracking number yet?

Just another heads up on the dictator VFTs. IMO they are a bit sensitive. I've lost a few do to them having small roots and I let the media get very slightly dry, even after having them for a month+. Luckily they give you plenty so I'm still ok. A few that had very small roots I put in live Sphagnum and they are doing great. I wish I would have done that with a few more.

Pretty much everything else I got from them was very well established, including some massive plants.

Package received and potted everything last night! The dictators are much smaller than I thought, but there are really a lot of them :D Some of them don't have any root at all, hope I can keep them alive. Other VFTs I bought are in decent size and still a lot more than promised:)

Overall I am very happy about this order! Thank you very much, w03!
