I’ve been waiting all morning for my package from Gem State Carnivores to arrive. Customer service has been excellent. He replies quickly to inquiries and shipping was fast. I bought 3 pings from him: P Weser, P emarginata x jaumavensis, and P laueana x potosiensis.
The pings were super well packed. So well packed, that I could barely get into it! There was a lot of cutting involved. The pings were healthy and a good size. The p emarginata x jauvamensis is in flower and pushing new buds out. I love the little white flower with pink veining.
The new plants were potted up in 2/3 peat and 1/3 perlite and the bottom was lined with a little bit of sphagnum. My first 3 came potted, so it was my first time seeing the roots. They are quite shallow and dinky–a little silly looking because you wonder how it’s supposed hold a plant in place.
On a side note, the serracenias are waking up. I bought a dormant mystery rhizome on a recent order from California Carnivores. Can’t wait to see what it is!
Are your carnivores waking up for the spring yet?
