HEY EVERYONE!!!! IM BACK AFTER BEING REALLY RALLY USY FOR A MONTH!!!! SO JUST AN UPDATE:
MY NEP DIED BUT ITS ALL GOOD I STILL HAVE MY CAPE SUNDEW~!

MY CAPENSIS RED IS DOING WELL AND PUTTING UP NEW LEAVES AT A NIE RATE. ALTHOUGH THE NEW LEAVES ARE KINDA SMALL. BUT I GUESS THAT IS FROM THE SHIPPING STRESS FROM 2 MONTHS AGO AND A LITTLE CUTTING OFF OF UGLY LEAVES I DID :) (THEY WERE LIKE DECAYING SO I TRIMMED THEM AND PUT THEM IN WATER BUT THEY DIDNT STRIKE :( ) HOWEVER I AM HAPPY BECAUSE THE NEW LEAVES ARE GETTING DEW ON THEM NOW AFTER LOSING IT TO A SMALL NO WATER PERIOD (I WAS BUSY AND FORGOT) AND ONE WRAPPED AROUND A FOOD PELLET SO THEY ARE VERY MUCH ALIVE.



Anyways! My trade thread is back up for action!

I can donate several baby b-52's that I had to deflask out of Tissue Culture prematurely. They are Genuine (not seed grown) and hardened, but will take a few weeks to look like a B-52's as they all do when freshly out of culture.

I have to send a Green Dragon to someone else and I can add this to the trip to the Post Office.

They will be sent bare root.

Ya they Came In great condition and are resting nicely now. Anything special I need to do? How should I care for them now? Do I just keep them in sunlight in their Tupperware which is in an open ziplock bag??
How wet do I need to keep them and when should I begin to see growth???

I'm so happy! Thanks amillion bro!

Are You growing indoors or outdoors? The care will be a little different. On these little guys, I would try for moist soil conditions and not soggy all of the time; this will encourage root growth, and inhibit rhyzome rot.

It is good if the tupperware container is fairly deep; maybe 3 inches? I would take off the bag; I've hardened them off to lower humidity conditions, and higher humidity encourages fungus, too. I would repot in a few weeks to their own plastic drinking cup or pot that is deeper yet with holes cut in the bottom. VFT'S really like to have deep pots and it is easier to keep the roots wet and the rhyzome moist that way. It also makes it easier for You to regulate the watering, because if You forget a water Day with a shallow pot, they may dry completely and die, but a deeper pot may give You some wiggle room. If growing outside, go with a much wider and deeper pot than they could possibly want, as this will ensure the roots won't cook in the hot weather. If it's hot, then it is impossible to overwater; keep them very moist to very wet all of the time with a tray of water at all times.

The care guide here is good. It's on the front page.
