    It's a Capensis Alba. It's difficult to see from pictures, but the growing point is dead. I took root cuttings hoping to salvage the plant. The Pinguicula is completely dead.

    Think he'll make good on the transaction?
    Good growing, Jack

    Contact him immediately.
    He does have a DOA policy of replacements/refunds, and with the tracking number, any holdups should be apparent, although the pictures are really all the proof he needs.
    He may not get back to you immediately, since he does have a day job, but I've placed countless orders with him and the two times things have gone wrong, he's made them right.

    Ouch, I've been disappointed by venders from various sites, fleabay and private transactions, but never have had a DOA like that ping. Hope seller makes good on this for you.

    the capensis isn't dead it is jest going thru extreme shock
    I would plant it up and see what happens the ping may be salvagable also
    keep them both in shade for a month and see what happens
    direct sun right now will kill them for sure

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    He didn't make good when I got dead stuff so...I would just not order from there again.

    The sundew will make it - take leaf/root cuttings in any case, but it'll pull through. Dunno about the ping.
