A fantastic plant June 1, 2019
Reviewer: Aidan Bell from Milford, MA United States  
I had been wanting to purchase a carnivorous butterwort for quite sometime, as I've been going through a sort of uphill battle against some fungus Gnats. We'll, the plant I ordered arrived in perfect condition, and has been growing/eating like crazy since arriving. Couldn't be happier with my purchase, and I'll definitely be ordering from you guys again :^)
