So, when this TC-cup arrived, I was thinking oh, maybe I should've ordered more but then: I opened the package. This cup was PACKED. Like wow. It was so densely packed that I was having trouble seperating the plants without damaging them. I got about 15 half-inch clumps separated and planted. This was incredible. I'm kind of.....shocked. All are adjusting well and of course a couple leaves are melting but that's okay, because that's what crypts do.
