Excellent, As Always July 31, 2017
Reviewer: Alexander Bradley-Popovich from clarksburg, WV United States  
SNW has never disappointed me. My plants were in excellent condition when I received them and were much larger than I expected. One month out, they continue to thrive. Great products!

Happy with experience April 25, 2017
Reviewer: Jason Woodland from Brooklyn, NY United States  
I am very happy with the experience of ordering a N sanguinea from Sarracenia Northwest.  I was going to be traveling on the weekend the shipment was to be expected, so a short phone call later, the shipment was delayed.  Then we were hit with a late "winter" storm and they contacted me to let me know they'd be waiting until the weather cleared to send the plant.  Excellent customer service.  The plant is happy in its new home and waiting eagerly to grow new pitchers.

Nepenthes Sanguiea March 26, 2017
Reviewer: Frank Chiafari from Brookfield , CT United States  
I received this fine pitcher plant from you about 1 month ago. It arrived in excellent condition being larger than I thought it would be. I have growing in a windowsill getting morning sun and it already is growing bigger. Thank you for your high quality plants. I will be ordering more soon.
