    How did the roots look?

    Hard to believe someone sent that out, it obviously had to look rough when they packed it up.... I would request a replacement or refund.

    foreign or domestic vendor?
    There are a couple of tiny (<1/2") pitchers that are still green, but not enough that I really hold out much hope. It was a domestic vendor. I had never used them before, and probably won't again unless they make this right... in a pretty big way.

    I actually paid a bit extra to have it shipped potted, so I can't really speak to the root structure.

    unpot it, remove the dead/dying material... repot in nice fresh mix, bag

    dump the old substrate and dont reuse the pot

    that should have never been shipped out to someone

    In a way, it doesnt really look like heli sudden death, but hard to tell from pic. HSD typically gets mushy from the base up.

    Well, I got it repotted. I soaked the new media in trichoderma, and gave the bare rooted plant a bath in it for a few minutes. Here's some pics of the roots, etc.

    It will definitely need TLC for a while but looks like it will make it.

    Still sad that some vendor sent it out like that.

    I'd be stoked if it made it! I guess it's a waiting game at this point...

    Thanks again for the advice and support, all. I'll keep updates coming.

    I just got an email from the vendor. He was totally cool about it. They're going to send a replacement...
