Reviewer: Diane from Pittsburgh  
Spring fever had me buy tropical plants in the middle of winter Sarracenia packed them amazingly, snug, and warm... but they caught got in a COLD Postal holiday during shipment which severely damaged them.

No questions asked Sarrcenia replaced the plants, and got them here 3000 miles away in two days!

They look amazing, thank god its spring!!!
