Reviewer: Tim from College Station, Texas United States  
This plant is adapting to it's new environment here in the texas heat.  It is a shock from the pacific northwest.  It is adapting well and after loosing some leaves, it is growing new ones and putting on new pitchers.  Thanks SNW for a nice plant
