    "Actual plant may vary from photo"

    Yeah - mine varied-----a total of about 20 traps on 2 Red Dragons! Much nicer than your sample pic and much, much, much nicer than the stuff at the hardware store. Thanx guys!

    This place is the best! I have a Staghorn fern that was huge on arrival and is growing like crazy...and a Sarracenia that had a five pitchers and in just a few months is popping out of it's pot with about 11 or 12! The plants from **********.com are amazing and so healthy...plus the customer service is the greatest. Phil and Jaie should be the only sellers allowed in the CP market!!!

    Hmmm... I jumped from being a "newbie" to a "member" after only 6 posts. Are there magic numbers that tie in to status changes? Anywayz...Against all advice on these forums - I've transplanted. Put my 3 plants into an 8" ceramic pot that is glazed inside and out. But it wasn't 3 plants - it was 4 plants. Jeff ended up shipping me a third plant that is soooooooooo tiny!!! So I got the 1 Common and the 3 Red Dragons in this pot now. Looks like a family: "Pa", "Ma", "Li'l Red", and "The-Cousin-That No-One-Ever-Talks-About". The family seems to be doing fine under a 50 watt screw in grow light on a 12 hour cycle; a total of 5 new traps are showing/unfolding. Have been meticulously trimming off the black here and there. The RD's seem to be showing more vigor than the Common; I was expecting the opposite trend. Actually I was expecting them all to be dead by now so every little change that happens with them is noted. I totally dote on these things...

    ummmm...maybe transplanting wasn't such a hot idea after all. Nothing has been happening since my last post except the family looks a bit more wilted than they did a few days back - no new growth - nada. Hopefully they'll come outta the shock and learn to enjoy their nice, new, big home. Maybe next time I'll actually put into practice what people that grow these things for a living have to say regarding this and that...

    I've heard that after re potting the plants take a week to start growing again.

    Well here is 2 easy reliable ways to get them back outta shock. #1. Use a diluted amount. (1 drop of it per gallon of distilled water. Use an eyedropper to get it precise.) #2. Just wait!
