    I'll live.. I've got plenty of venustas to spare. Is it a pile of mush now?

    show me a pic, and I'll hook you up with a few big venustas if it's somewhat salvageable. I've got a couple things going out on Monday anyways, so what's one more package.

    There it is. I'd hope it's shock, but I doubt it because it's not my first. I just found out they prefer cooler weather with high humidity, so I'll try to rehab it and see if that helps. I really hate the idea of getting it to you and it's beyond hope, ya know?

    And I wouldn't need a few. A couple small ones would be fine, and they can go in with the rest of my stuff. No sense in being redundant.

    It's not dying, it's dormant. The outer leaves all die back and leave a bulb. From D'Amato in Savage Garden: " It is very odd in its having a long dormancy underground as an almost onion-like 'bulb'. It must be kept bone-dry during this rest period." Mine usually stay like this for a month or so and then come back even bigger than before. I would repot it, if the medium isn't going to dry out in a day or two. I have had really good luck growing mine in a violet planter. It keeps it damp but not too wet.
