5 of 5 Love my Big Pink! February 14, 2020
Reviewer: Bryn  
This plant arrived in great condition and was very carefully packaged. As with any plant shipped in the mail, a couple of stems died soon after arriving, but it’s growing like a weed now! It does a good job of catching gnats and definitely cuts down on the population. It’s very pretty as well. Great plant

5 of 5 Sundews & Pitcher Plants February 9, 2020
Reviewer: Susan Campbell from Berkeley Springs , WV United States  
These are my first carnivorous plant, not counting venus fly traps I got as a kid. I'm very pleased with the speed they arrived and all in great condition. Plenty of growing instructions were included.  All of them are still alive and thriving (pitcher plants are planted outside and are dormant now, but healthy).

5 of 5 Beautiful variant of capensis September 30, 2019
Reviewer: Matthew Fujita from Arlingto, TX United States  
As always, my new capensis came perfectly, with a few little ones in tow. They have maintained their hue under LEDs and are doing great!
