As some of you know I got some new plants this week and thought I would post some pics of the packaging, and plants I received.

This is the box I received from handrailpete and the Lueco form Sarr and Capensis Alba.

My second box

I know there's a Heli minor in here somewhere.

Finally unpacked!

Thank you guys!

I have new growth on my H. Minor finally.

Image

My Capensis "Alba" is going to open its first flower for me in the next couple days. Sorry no pic of that yet, maybe tonight when I'm airing everything out.

Image

My Sarr took a hit along with all of my other outside plants, when I kept saying I'll bring them in, in a few, and fell asleep. They all took a good freeze from that. Knock on wood I haven't lost any yet from it, but they sure didn't like it. Only time will tell how bad it really was.

Thanks for looking!
Capensis Alba pic added.

Just a couple Heli update pics, and one question.

How do you guys/gals bag and unbag these things without breaking nectar spoons off? I think I broke three or four of them off during acclimation.

That is looking great.. as far as acclimation goes, I have nothing for ya... when I get mine I usually just put them where it's a little extra humid under my light and it's done well for me.
