Reviewer: Rona L Figueroa from New York, NY United States  
I'm super pleased with my plant. Trying to remove the packaging almost obliterated her, but fortunately, she was resilient and made it through our rough beginning with flying colors. She's a super beauty and has been capturing her snacks efficiently. I have a lot less soil gnats this summer than I did before she showed up. I had no idea carnivores don't have to look like a Venus fly trap or a pitcher. I would love to have more Pinguiculas!

Awesome! July 20, 2019
Reviewer: Bethany Smalley from LANCASTER, PA United States  
Plant cake carefully packaged and with clear instructions for care. I’ve had it about a month now and it’s been controlling the fruit flies in my kitchen, and just grew a beautiful purple flower!

Came sooner than I thought and the plant seemed in good condition and remarkably not stressed at all from transit.
