    These BOGO’s arrived in great shape. Each had a fully mature pitcher and new leaf growth bringing new pitchers. They are happy and growing in a SE window. I’ll be back!

    Great plants

    Posted by Jenna Young on February 2, 2024

    I ordered my Nepenthes Gaya during the sale... Got my two plants today, they're amazing!! I wish I could put pictures, as the plants are so good. Both plants had pitchers and one of them was almost 3 inches tall!! Both plants have several new pitchers starting. Even the leaves were huge and good looking. Very healthy green blushed with a bit of red, and glossy. The pitchers were beautiful and healthy looking. Even showed my cousin who was here today, she grows these and she told me the company was one of the best she's seen as they looked SO healthy. So you have the approval of two separate people with these plants... Highly, highly recommend

    Magic bullet for fruit flies

    Posted by Mike mintz on October 1, 2023

    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!
