Received the order today. I forgot how small tc'd plants are, so at first I thought I didn't get my whole order :P

However, despite the plants' small size, they came in large portions, which is much better than a few larger plants in my opinion, since I can try different mediums for the same species.

I also saw a stylidium debile was included, is this a bonus? If so awesome!

I sent the stylidium as an extra for the trade ;)

And nice photos Abeginner. :D

Those are the biggest ones of each cultivar. I ended up with 28 pots in total :)

That Kim Il-sung has no root at all. And it happens to be the biggest one, which worries me a lot. Now I am keeping him under morning sun, soak him in water under afternoon sun. Pull him out in for a couple hours led light in the evening. I am planning to repeat this for one or two weeks. Hope he won't die on me :(

Considering that they were TC'd, I wouldn't be surprised. It might be best to up the humidity and keep it under softer conditions for a while until it gets firmly rooted, then harden it off.

I live in Socal, and mainly grow outdoor. Softer condition is not very easy to get :( I have a pot of each type in garage under CFL, that's the softest I can get. And still it gets hot in the afternoon, but way cooler comparing to outdoor.
I am sure most of them will live, but most likely I might lose a couple too :( Glad they send this many:)

Thanks w03! I've always been intruiged by these, glad to finally have one!

I am very slow at potting plants, so expect pictures in a few hours, or perhaps more like 6 hours.

I still got three ping species to go. Most of my time has been spent prepping the media for my other plants, and experimenting with different mixes. Since the last three are some lesser-known Mexican species, I imagine I will be spending a lot of time prepping different mixes for them. Hopefully I'll finally be done tonight, and I will post pics in the BCP pic thread :D
