    New Additions....

    My four plant shipment from the Czech Republic is at the Post Office so tomorrow I make the pick-up. It's still a little early so if they are cold bit it's on me and PLEASE, I don't want to get into another discussion about ordering plants in the cold of winter!
    I will post pictures tomorrow upon my return.

    Thank you, I am looking forward to growing both varieties of singalana for comparison sake. It won't be long before I will be moving the high altitude plants to the fridge rather than the cold room cooled by nature. I am learning a lot as I go and figured out the reason my hamata's pitchers were dudding out was due to lack of water, I just wasn't watering enough. The foliage was also stunted and now that the problem has been corrected one of them is taking off.

    That's cool! I have to find another sing tujuh. GL with the fridge method. I hope it works well for you.

    OK, here we go.......I was in a hurry to get to the grocery and didn't want to leave the box in the cold truck so I brought them home, unboxed and placed then in the rack still in baggies. The foliage is lush and very healthy and I managed to curl the lower stalk on three of them to bring the crown closer to the medium. I think that in a month or so I might shorten the stems, dip in rooting hormone and re-pot with the crown, level with the soil. The seller does have good communication, cares about safe delivery, good selection, fast shipping and healthy plants so I will order more from him later this spring

    Plants look nice and healthy. Not sure why "leggy" is a problem, that's typically how vining plants grow.
