This beautiful plant arrived here in Connecticut in top condition. I put it in an east window and it is now growing vibrantly. It currently has a colorful flower. Recommended highly.

Pinguicula x Aphrodite February 7, 2019
Reviewer: MB from Texas  
Superior packaging of a spectacular plant. I was actually overwhelmed at unboxing. There were easily 10-15 sprouting Aphrodite throughout the growing media. Sarracenia Northwest is supernatural.

Beautiful plants! February 4, 2019
Reviewer: Rose from South san francisco, CA United States  
I ordered a few different Butterworts.  When they arrived I was astonished at what good shape they were in and how mature the plants were.  I was expecting a small plant but these were good size and very healthy. I've paid much more for far less elsewhere.  I'll be ordering from Sarracenia again.

Nice addition to my office at work January 7, 2019
Reviewer: Dave F. from Levittown, PA United States  
Plant arrived in very good shape.  It is now growing nicely on my desk at work.  It has plenty of dew, seems to have gotten larger, and has even captured a couple of gnats.
