Beauty! August 10, 2017
Reviewer: SHEENA OCOT from NEWARK, NJ United States  
Sarracenia Northwest definitely knows carnivorous plants!  It arrived safely and intact.  It is thriving on my outdoor patio and already caught a meal or two.  This is my second flytrap from Sarracenia and will buy more in the future!
