Better than expected January 15, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from North Central Florida, zone 9A  
Since I live in zone 9a I keep all of my CPS outside year round. My other flytraps were going into dormancy but the dente came with a few nice mature leaves and ones still developing.  I wasn't expecting that.

Survived Winter Shipping January 9, 2017
Reviewer: Thom from Champaign, IL  
I was impressed with the level of care that was taken to ensure a safe journey to my house. Plants arrived on a very cold day; it was about 20 degrees F on the day they showed up on my porch. Taking them inside and unpacking them revealed very healthy looking plants. As I live in Plant Hardiness Zone 5, I will be keeping them indoors this winter while trying to maintain dormancy by placing them on a cool windowsill. I am looking forward to watching them flourish outdoors once Spring arrives!

Great plant! Excellent packaging January 8, 2017
Reviewer: Rain from Windsor, CO United States  
I wondered how on earth a small plant would make it safely through the mail system. Sarracenia did such an amazing job preparing and shipping this plant! It arrived in perfect condition and is flourishing :)
