5 of 5 Great plant, slight transport damage August 9, 2020
Reviewer: Malayna from Utah, USA  
This was my 1st experience with carnivorous plants & buying plants online & am very happy with both experiences.  I wanted something that would be a natural solution for fungus gnats & not harm my plants, my kids or my pets, before trying more harsh (and ugly) options.  And it was an excuse to get more plants, win win!  It came well packaged inside a plastic cup, but it was evident after several days that a couple of the stems had been damaged as they seemed to be dying.  Based on the info in the box & the website I wasn't worried about it (stated it might take some days to recover and there was a 30-day guarantee).  And while it did end up losing the sticky ends of the damaged stems, the plant as a whole has recovered quite nicely and made quite a dent in my gnat population judging by all the buggy bodies it's collected.  I am quite happy with how little attention it needs, just fill up the water every couple of days.  It's been fun for the kids too.  Can't wait to get more!

5 of 5 She eats the fruit flies! August 7, 2020
Reviewer: Michael Duncan from LA GRANGE, KY United States  
Our Big Pink drosera has grown with regular feeding of distilled water (when her soil gets dry, maybe 1 x week) and by keeping either under my LED grow bulbs next to other plants or in my fermentation station where fruit flies like to congregate. Almost always has a new leaf in some stage of growth. Very pleased with her!
