    Do you soak and scar them first? Never had any fungus problems here, and it's moist enough in these parts...

The real risk is in breaking the roots and stem, more than disturbing them - as was evidenced by jim's plant. Come to think of it, jim, or possibly someone else, had one spring up in another pot that wouldn't suit a Drosophyllum, and repotted it successfully. I think they can't be shipped reliably because the risk of root and stem damage is too great. But that said, there are probably ways to ship them that increase the odds of survival.

    LOL! My plant, was the result of visiting elgecko and taking hope a pot that just happened to have a seed in it, primed for germination. my own germination attempts have been 100% failure. The seedling uktimately died from one too many transplants / upgrades. The plants that survived falling were pygmy sundews from the kitchen window, a 3' drop to the floor, resulting in perhaps a little confused re-labelling.

    Hmm, I must be thinking of someone else's Drosophyllum falling off a balcony - I'm fairly certain it was a Drosophyllum. I remember the picture of the soil all over the grass and a busted Slack-potting setup.
