Hi guys! *I am sweating bullets here since a friend who shall remain nameless please kindly sent me 6 or 7 N. campulata, 2 N. albo-marginata and a N. argenti.
One N. albo-marginata and one N. campanulata lacks roots.
The N. campanulata are quarter sized rosettes. *N. argenti is about the size of a 3 month VFT seedling. *The N. albo-marginata are silver dollar sized.
This was unlooked for and I am looking for advice as to how best establish these babies. *All are currently in a domed salad bowl that has nice established and growing LFS, and is very clean. *I assume this will be a good nursery, at least short term. *The plants are on the lowermost shelf ogf my grow room, but it can still hit 80F there. *Things wil be cooling down at night: already my outdoor highland Neps are pitchering again after just sitiing there all summer.
It was amusing to see that with the packaging of the first boxes of plants I have been able to send out in ages, this package should arrive the same day. *I guess I should just expect it, since it has happened so many times.
So I will finally have my crack at N. argentii. *It has one good leaf less than a cm long, and a root. *I am not overly optimistic, but it is exciting to have this plant at last. *I've done more with less!
I hope to be able to offer the plants at some time in the future, so wish me success!
