My “Dente Flytrap”
It arrived, safe and sound. Wrapped lovingly and securely, it survived shipping across the country and has settled into its new home beautifully. Can’t wait for spring, when it will begin actively growing again.
My plant was very well packaged, it is dormant but looking very healthy.
