    SNW has the highest quality plants at the best possible prices. My fly traps came in excellent condition and have thrived since opening the package they were so expertly packed into. I also highly recommend buying drosera from SNW as they offer a diverse selection at competitive prices.

    In great shape

    Posted by Nathan Miller on February 26, 2021

    My plant arrived in great shape. The leaves are very small right now, and last fortnight's ice storm had no effect on it. It's still waiting to burst forth with spring's warmth.

    Showed up in good condition. Doing well in dormancy. Looking forward to seeing it grow when it comes out of dormancy.
