I ordered a Drosera spiralis and a Drosera prolifera from Native Exotics on the 21st. Since I just missed the processing deadline, it didn't get shipped unil the 28th. The last update on USPS tracking was on the 29th, which said it arrived in the Rochester, NY, origin facility. Since there hasn't been any updates I'm assuming it has gotten lost (unless for some reason they take a long time to ship, even though it is 2-day priority. I live in Oregon, but I don't think that should make a difference). Since these aren't the most hardy of Drosera, I was wondering if any has had a similar experience, and if they ever recieved the package, how the planted faired.

It would be a real bummer to loose these guys, they were the last of each on Native Exotics.

D. prolifera is pretty tough, shouldn't have a big problem.
D. spiralis is a highland plant, so if it gets in really hot conditions it won't fare well - however, it's fall already so I doubt that will happen.

They'll probably be perfectly fine. Even if it takes a whole week in transit they should be alright.
