Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Minnesota  
The plant arrived excellently packaged and in wonderful condition. It has already grown a multitude of new leaves and catching all my fungus gnats! Would definitely buy from Sarracenia Northwest again!!!

Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Ordered a Pinguicula x aphrodite, having no previous experience with Pings. Plant arrived very well packed and very healthy as a result, and started blooming within a couple weeks of receiving. Great shipping and great customer service.
