    Thanks for posting the pics. You can never have enough helis.

    I'm sure they will be red in no time.

    Can't wait to see them potted up, and then again after they've settled in!

    I never ever worried about acclimating plants before, I never had any problems. But my last Wistuba shipment taught me a valuable lesson. I had 60% RH and thought... ahhh no worries.... didn't think twice about it. Well, I awoke the next morning to find a raisin that use to be my new baby nutan.. with the rest showing damage as well. The nutan didn't make it but the rest recovered nicely after putting them in bags and slowly acclimating them.

    So now.... lesson learned

    update:

    After 3 weeks their acclimation is progressing nicely, some battle scars from the long journey but all is well. They're over the hump, each shows plenty of new growth with good color.

    Thank you Andreas

    Those are huge! Did you make a special request from Wistuba or something?

    The plants I got from him were about a tenth the size of some of yours.
