Im sooooooooooo excited and its soooooooooooo darn cute and delicate. It has the tiniest pitchers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smilie4.gif[/img] *Now it did come in alittle cold and im kinda worried about it, i carefully unwrapped it and got a plant pot ready for it, i used what i had, orchid bark chips which i rinsed in hot distilled water/then cooled and then the moss i got in as well spag, also used some canadian peat moss mixed with alittle perlite, tossed it all together and then prepared the pot which is just plastic with lots drain holes on the bottom. I carefully planted it in the middle. I noticed one of the pitchers is browning and not looking good and then the newer pitcher has a leaf thats alittle on the yellow side [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] *and then theres a developing pitcher, soooooooooooooooooo flipin tiny i cant get over how precious this plant is. I then waterd it real well with distilled water and now its sitting in my office warming up. One of the leafs that was developing broke off in shipment so i just stuck it in the poting mix, what should i do with the leaf?? Also i want everyones input should i keep it in the mix i made up or go a diffrent route as thats all i had to work with at this time.. Will my new baby be ok after such a cold trip here??
