Bought this for my 14 year old grandson’s birthday and it was a huge hit with him. Plant was nicely packaged and arrived safely. Of course, now he wants more of them! :)
We eat tons of fresh fruit and veggies. They attract fruit flies. We have been plagued with them all summer. Along comes this magical plant and the population declines to zero over 30 days. I still don’t understand how it worked so quickly or how a each tiny pod can eat 2 or so per day. It’s possible, they decided to all lay their eggs in it. Either way, the nuisances are finally finito.
I bought this plant for my boss's birthday as it reminded me so much of her. (Pink and cheetah print). I had ordered a small, and to my surprise, this amazing company sent me a medium after conversating with them about trying to get one with a couple pitchers already on it! I can't say enough good things about this company! Usually, I only rate 4 stars as every business always has room for improvement, but for this purchase, it's a solid FIVE STARS!
Arrived just fine and in a timely manner . Had one older pitcher that I cut off. Now growing 2 more! Very happy with my purchase!
The two plants I bought both arrived extremely well packed and in pristine condition. They're both growing and doing very well!
The plant looks just like the picture and is doing well looking good and it only got a little bit homesick. We took care of that with a nice window facing east
My Nepenthes X Gaya shipped fast and arrived beautiful and healthy! The packaging was great, filled tightly so the plant would not roll, and they added a heating mat for extra protection. I will definitely be purchasing from this company again.
I would love to see more species of nepenthes in your nursery for sale your nepenthes gaya has lit a nepenthes flame
I received a beautiful, healthy plant. Packaged very securely, received quickly. Would definitely buy from this seller again.
Sometimes I have problems with ants are there any tips or information on dealing with them they seem to always find them
This plant was well packaged and in great shape when it arrived. Plant is doing well and getting new pitchers routinely. Very happy with this purchase.
The plant arrived well packed and in good shape, despite going to a PO Box and sitting there several days. It has just kept growing, with new pitchers appearing and I love it. The trick will be keeping it going all winter. Very happy.
