    Ok, thanks. Nepenthes moist?

    Not even that wet. Just barely moistened. The corms of Pecteilis prefer it on the drier side in winter. I've rotted many of them by keeping them too wet during dormancy.

    Ok, I pulled the egret orchids up, but this guy came out too because the roots were tangled. I stuck it back in the ground an inch or so deeper than it was before(it was too shallow this year)to wait for spring, but just wanted to make sure it's healthy.
    These are the egret orchid bulbs. It looks like I got five, but I'm not sure how many of them will be viable.
