    Did you just recently get it? Pygmy Drosera don't ship very well. That's why a lot of people wait and ship gemmae.

    Now scorpoides are weird I bare rooted them form Hawaii complete no soil I was very careful about damaging the roots though. They all came back though. I careful bare rooting works best for them otherwise well there gone. Now when transplanted they typically go dormant form shock then comeback but it is gradually like they die to hairs then down to nothing then comeback. If your careful and good enough you can make them not go dormant/go into shock when there young then pot then with a huge clump of media around the plants(no root disturbance then wait 2 weeks and if there growing good your set. DM your scorpoides look great They grow quick don't they I see some of the gemmae just started DM thats just weird I have some that are not sprouting yet and some that is just sprouting after 3 months thats weird the unsprouted guys wonder if there viable and will sprout there side by side with adults in the same pot.

    Pygmy Drosera form a few very long roots that will not regrow if you break thm off.

    You still have 5 plants. If they survive to produce gemmae this autumn/winter then you might get 10-50 gemmae per plant. So potentially you can have around 250+ plants next year.

    If the plants are over 1 year old they might flower this year and produce seeds to so you have potentially more plants from seeds by the end of the year.
