    Sarracenia Race. What do I do?

    Big problem. BIG PROBLEM! So, since I'm making a minobog, I bought two gallons of soil from #### to fit the pot and I bought the Sarracenia from a different store called @@@@. @@@@ just shipped the plants, so they're coming on Wednesday-Thursday. Great, right? WRONG! #### didn't ship the soil yet, so what if the plants come a day or even 2 before? I can't leave them in the box, and there's 3 in clumps. I have no soil or temporary pots. What do I do?!

    you should have just bought peat and perlite from lowes...its easier and cheaper, just make sure its not miracle grow or any other brand with fertilizers in it...

    You can multi pot the plants with your other cp's for the time being till everything arrives if the plants arrive first before the soil.

    SirKristoff, I know, but I didn't. And there are no Lowes even barely close to me. The closest ones don't have peat/perlite. I did my research .
    Nepenthes101, we're talking about a 1-2 day difference, and there is no room in the pots. Plus, the sarrs' roots are too deep for my pots which contain mostly Pings or, well, are just small pots.

    Just stick them in some water.

    They'll be fine for weeks like that.

    It's not special, it's just that there are NO stores near me that carry peat.
    I ordered a gallon of peat and a gallon of peat/perlite.
    Alexis, thanks for the advice! I'll try that.

    you will be fine then..
    even if the plants arrive before the peat..
    just stick the plants in a container of water until the peat arrives..
    no worries..
