Thanks for the great plant, seedlings, and pullings jht!! :D They all arrived in good condition. Heres pics of my new P. Moctezumae, Sundew seedlings, and VFT pullings. And I have to say jht is awesome for throwing these things in with the trade. I also have a pic of my vft just because i thought it looked really cool right now.

I used a strawberry container as a humidity chamber for the pullings and seedlings...

Everything looks fantastic, and the pinguicula is really well potted!!!!!!!!, thank you for the pinguicula primuliflora, and you're welcome!

Keep the D.adelae seedlings wet and hig temps of 70-80F, same with the VFT pullings, where is the small drosera?, i don't see it, it was next to the pinguicula?

Thanks guys! Should I cut that flower stalk or let it grow? And sorry i forgot to mention, i didnt put a picture of that drosera yet because its kinda looks like green mush at the moment lol. it was so small that all the leaves kinda stuck together, but the roots looked nice :)

I would cut it only because the plant is probably going to go through a little bit of transplant shock and that will affect the plant enough, so I wouldn't risk losing more energy off of the flower stalk.
That's just what I think. You can also let it flower and try and get seeds out of it.
At FlyTrapCare's VFT Propagation Article, you can learn how to both pollinate the flower (seeds) or how to strike it (cut and get new plant). :)
Good luck :D

Well Ive had the vft since late january, so its probably done with transplant shock, no? All that growth is new growth after ive planted it. So I think im going to let it flower and try to pollinate, unless you think its still going through transplant shock.
