It came today! little smaller than I hoped but I got two plants,Just need it to flower by spring to cross with a couple of my seedlings! Leaf fell off so I stuck it in to see if it might root,looks too small to root,

Hi madmacks! Looks like the rhizome of the plants is a little exposed! You will need to make sure that the rhizome (white part of the plant) is completely underneath the peat. This can be hard to do with a plant like Coquillage, which grows down on itself and tends to push itself out of the soil, but it is imperative for the plants' rhizome to be under the surface of the soil.

And regarding the size of the plant, Coquillage doesn't get terribly large. But the plant on the right side of the photo will definitely flower in the spring. Coquillage is a robust plant that flowers predictably and produces quite a bit of seed.

Thanks,I gave it a little push down,it does want to keep springing up.
