Sarracenia Northwest is the Best! June 6, 2019
Reviewer: Faser Hardin from New York, NY (Manhattan)  
Just received today my beautiful Nepenthes x Falcon. Over the years I have ordered plants from them and they are always in pristine shape when they arrive. This Nepenthes was no exception - beautifully wrapped and packaged. Can't wait for it to start putting on pitchers. I highly recommend Sarracenia Northwest.
