Still hard to tell May 22, 2017
Reviewer: Benjamin Larsen from PORTLAND, OR United States  
The plant is very small and had nothing growing from it upon arrival, but appears to be putting out it's first leaflet right along side with my established pitchers. Looks good so far. :-)

Bought this along with my S purpurea venosa, and of coarse it was packed well--it's a beautiful plant and I really like it.

These are real cuties too December 7, 2015
Reviewer: Ramon L. Nelson from Willow Springs, MO United States  
I bought several of these for their bright yellow to go alone with the beautiful reds of the other Sarracenia. With a few green and white type of Sarracenia, these yellow lovelies are a great addition for the 'The Dog Barn'.
