What to do after receiving plants in the mail

  1. First of all, if the package looks damaged, take pictures with your phone if you can. This way you can contact me if the plants are damaged or destroyed. I always ship packages with insurance so a refund can be sent out if needed. 
  2. If not damaged, carefully open the package by scoring the tape along the box openings and unfold the cardboard.  With larger plants like sarracenia, I usually have the plants wrapped in a plastic bag with the bag taped to the inside of the cardboard.  Cut this tape to remove the plant (be careful not to cut the plant).
  3. Once plant is free, you can keep it inside the bag until you have the proper soil mixture made. I use 60 to 70 percent peat moss and 30 t0 40 percent sand or perlite.  Add water to make the soil mixture damp so the new plant doesn't dry out too quick.
  4. Add the peat mixture to a proper container, either a plastic pot or a glazed clay pot (must be glazed on the inside of the pot).  Once the pot is about half full (depending on the size of the pot and the plant being planted, remove the plant from the bag and set inside the pot.  Holding the plant by the leaves to keep it upright and steady, fill in around the root ball with the rest of the peat mixture.  Don't over pack the peat, just give it a gentle pat to help settle the soil down and remove any voids.
  5. Give the new plant a drink of fresh water and set it in a saucer if you like.  Place your new addition in an area where it can get partial to full sun.  Check the soil for dampness on a daily basis until you know for sure how long the plant can go without watering.  For more care info, click here.
  6. Lastly, enjoy and have fun with your plant(s).
