    I got mine! pretty much all of them are green except 1 or 2 turn brown. I potted up. I will keep it updated. BTW the seal of the padded envelope was popped open when I got it make sure you tape it when you mail out self-seal usually too strong or too weak.

    Thanks you very much.

    Ok, that's a new brand of envelopes, I'll tape them down in the future. Did it take that long to get more or less across town? I sent those out Monday last week as I recall.

    I got mine last week. (Ooops!)

    They are all planted, and many are beginning to sprout. Thanks, NAN!

    So far, so good... The D. roseana and D. scorpioides that I planted under fluorescent lights are sprouting, in fact I finally saw little leaves on some of the D. roseana...

    The D. scorpioides, D. roseana and D. pulchella that are in my south-facing window are also moving along, although more slowly, as expected...

    Thanks again so much; very excited for these, my first pygmy sundews!

    All were mailed out as of Friday 12/3.

    Keeping the media very moist and/or high humidity tends to help with most until the roots get established then you can back down.

    Once the plants start growing fully formed traps you can introduce springtails to your pots to feed the plants. They'll grow a lot faster if well fed. Put a small pot of moist peat outdoors near some soil for a few days. This will likely attract springtails and unfortunately fungus gnats. If you see springtails shoo away any adult gnats and bring the pot indoors next to your other pots. Just let it dry out which will kill any fungus gnat eggs or larvae and the springtails will invade your other pots.

    Just wanted to say thanks again! These were my first pygmy sundews and they're doing pretty well!

    A couple of the D. roseana:

    Those are doing rather well. It looks like they're getting some springtail meals too.

    Happy growing!
