5 of 5 Happy plant April 19, 2020
Reviewer: Bob Powell from Three Rivers, CA United States  
Ordered a Drosera “Big Pink”. It arrived in a timely fashion and was well packaged.  Plant started putting on new growth pretty quickly. Pretty good considering winter is still hanging on here. Fed it some Freeze dried Bloodworms crushed and mixed with water. It ate that like a hungry Wolf.
  Nice addition to the Carnivorous kitchen window.
