Growth resumes in spring.

    Got this for my fiancé for Valentine’s Day because she loves reptiles and tarantulas and all the creepy things so I thought it would be a good fit and she ABSOLUTELY loves it! It’s growing already and came healthy and it perfect shape. Definitely will order from you guys again!

    Got the plant in mid January and potted it up and put it in the unheated grow tunnel. In 6 weeks It has half a dozen tiny traps already and they are closed with fire ants trapped inside! Fun fun fun.

    I highly recommend ordering from this company. I live in Florida and the plant arrived perfectly packaged and undamaged. The instructions or removing the plant from the packaging and taking care of the plant were very clear and informative. I believe it’s been about a month since I’ve received my plant and it’s doing very well.

    Flytraps arrived pretty quickly and they were beautiful. My 5 year old son was thrilled!! We have had such fun this past month watching them grow and “catch” bugs.

    I had been looking for one of these for a while and couldn’t find a place that had nice healthy Venus fly traps. This arrived packaged well with no damage to the plant at all. Was still moist and plant arrived very healthy. Me and my boyfriend love to check on it outside and see which trap has a fly in it! Can’t wait to see how it grows!
