Good condition, healthy August 13, 2018
Reviewer: E_bone  
Plant arrived sooner than anticipated. It had one fully grown pitcher and another that looked as if it had opened up one or two days before it arrived. I would have wanted a slightly bigger plant but that is its only problem. Would buy again.
