Thank you @WillyCKH for taking on my fan housing 3D print request. The filament makes for a nice material that should last for a long time. The additional gift of the container is much appreciated. Willy is always a pleasure to communicate with.
I'm very pleased with the order I made with Tails and Scales. They were very professional, updated me with emails and photos of actual plants I bought. It was supposed to be overnight shipment, but FedEx kept screwing up and delaying the scheduled delivery, arriving 4 days after shipment. The large styrofoam box with heat pack was properly packed, plants were nicely bagged up.
The small sized plants I received were nicely sized (compared to other nursery's small size) and the large plants were indeed, large. I understand that some species are harder to obtain in larger size, but I had ordered a same Nep species from one seller whose large was only 3.5" in diameter & 2" tall, whereas Tails and Scales' large was 10" in diameter and 10" tall. The medium sized plants were also decent size.
Definitely recommend. Attached are some of the photos they sent me prior to shipping
Thank you @peggylikesplants for the D. oreopodion gemmae. Seems they rooted into the paper towel but were easily removable. I just finished transplanting them into soil. I will PM you once the weather warms up.
Just received my CPSC calendar, systemic insecticide (500 mL). Just finished spraying all of my plants so hopefully that takes care of the thrip population. Thank you @WillyCKH for the additional gift of seeds. Time to toss these into the fridge and forget about them for a few weeks to months.
