You know the famous line, "If anything can go wrong - it will". There are others like, "Everybody rises to their highest level of incompetence" (Peter Principle) and, "The propensity for bread to land buttered side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet."
The latter holds true with CP's. Last year I received a carefully packaged Byblis liniflora and I took just as much care in attempting to unpackage it. Unfortunately, I accidently dropped it, dew side down and although I quickly got it onto soil, water, and covered - it died.
A similar thing happened when I went to re-pot a P. primuliflora. It fell to the floor and died within a week.
How about you?
