Excellent Purchase June 5, 2016
Reviewer: Rob Farrow from San Diego, CA United States  
I recently purchased a Sarracenia x Sweet Excellence. I'm happy to say, not only did it arrive promptly and in excellent shape, it's also growing rapidly and capturing lots of insects.

Another one that .....one is not enough December 7, 2015
Reviewer: Ramon L. Nelson from Willow Springs, MO United States  
After this Sarracenia arrived in such a nice cluster and grouping..... I reordered them again. If you ever look for a great deal...this is it.  I never received such a cluster of plants at this price from any of the dealers that I had done business in the past.  SNW is number # ONE for me.
