Updates: Replacement package has arrived! The old one is probably lost on the way... So I will be sorting them tonight, and tomorrow. I will PM everyone to get their shipping preference and have them mailed out on Monday! If you missed ordering the gemmae like some people who have messaged me, I have ordered more than I need so I will have some for sale/trade soon. Stay tuned! Cheers, Willy

This gemmae order came through to Ottawa the other day with additions of select plants from Willy. Most gemmae were specks although almost half were green and looking for some soil. It seemed to be very dependent on the species/variety rather than packaging order and none were scarily rooted. Since these resent repotting they were deep potted in a few pots and I'll transfer their gemmae to more special pots if the plants strike me.
I don't find the Pygmies that hard to repot. I just float the roots out with water and carefully put them in the new soil. The taller ones like scorpioides make stilt roots which you just poke into the soil.
A couple of years back some plants that I had ordered and had in quarantine had a bunch of Anole eggs hatch (Anolis sagrei). I haven't had much to do with lizards before this but they are sweethearts. Their main food here is flightless fruitflies and we have about 10 feet of shelfspace devoted to culturing them. Each terrarium averages having its doors about 4 times a day unless it is bumped higher with plants wanting extra tending. So consumers of loose flies that wouldn't just find them an irritation will be a good thing. The Anoles are all under an ounce so a larger plant could catch it if not digest it when one gets loose. The pygmies suit my needs atm.
