    Help - Dome or No Dome for injuried plant

    Just got a beat up P.Moranensis in the mail today.
    Shipped bare root and there is plenty of damage.
    I've already planted this plant and a leaf for backup.
    Should I put this plant under a dome or NO dome for the recovery?



    Thank you for the advice!
    Steve

    No dome in my opinion, its a little beat up, I've received pings in worse condition though and they recover just fine. The leaf pulling is always a good idea, I might even grab another.

    Thank you for the quick replies!
    Would you dome the leaf pullings then?
    (I can put under a dome or a ziplock bag)
    Thoughts?

    THANK YOU again!

    I used to bag mine, found it to be a hassle and just started sticking them on moderately wet turface under a dome, I still get decent strike rates.

    Like everyone else said, no dome. That plant doesn't even look that bad, imo. Mexican Pinguicula are incredibly durable. Given proper light and moisture it should look presentable in no time.

    I'll post a follow up photo in a week. I think the photo makes it look better than it is, every large leaf is bend, cracked or creased.
    The plant is under my new EnviroGro T5 fixture, so it should be getting lots of light and I'll keep a close eye on keep it moist.
    Thank you for the reply!
