    the 72 hour ones sent with my nepenthes get just a little warm but for a long time so the plants dont get cooked just keeps them from freezing. I am also not in a huge hurry and will gladly wait for a warm stretch (relatively speaking)

    Awesome! that kind of trading is what these forums can be all about!

    From the looks of the plantlets, they are starting to situate themselves and I think will be good to go by end of the month IF I include a heat pack.

    Exactly my thoughts too! Haha RELATIVELY speaking warmer. I am not patient enough to think I want to wait until April

    Getting back into my love of CPs is such a stupid thing to begin in November!

    Looks like most of those were negatively affected by the "Ping tray flood of 2018". Looks like I have emarginata, but I'm waiting to confirm ID. So, sorry I guess I don't have the ones you're wanting.

    Hahaha ouch! I can imagine a story here. Sad tale most likely! At least they might recover.

    While switching out for a deeper water tray for my Gemmae setup, I fumbled as I poured the water in from the previous tray.



    That spot up front was a gap big enough to pour water in but I poured too fast and then fumbled and it caused a tidal wave of water to get into the pulchella pot and pushed around all the sand and the gemmae!! I had METICULOUSLY spread out three types of pulchella gemmae into a three-section pie chart of gemmae by color of flower and then my tidal wave moved everything around to the back of the pot! mixed completely up!

    I was able to restore the spread out look again but who knows what type of pulchella now....sigh



    But things are turning out fine. I will share on another thread. I don't want to hijack this thread anymore than I already have just because I saw the phrase water tray flood and wanted to share my own water tray flood story.
