    They arrived in pristine condition with 2 pitchers that caught flies within the first 36 hours. I've had them for a month and there's already new pitchers forming. I can't recommend this farm highly enough

    Growing in a sunny windowsill in Colorado. Grown a second pitcher in a month and working on two more. Love this plant and plan to get more.

    Nepenthes X Gaya

    Posted by Hreb Goldberger on April 16, 2021

    Disappointingly, I can only issue a 5 star rating. I would prefer to make it a 10. My 2 Nepenthes came in perfect condition, well packed, and very quickly. Being new to carnivorous plants, especially Nepenthes, I was concerned. I just followed the advice provided, and both Ns are doing spectacularly well.On both plants,I have several pitchers developed already, with more growing in. In about another week or two I plan on moving both to a larger, hanging basket. I am so pleasef with your firm for a number of reasons. Your service is unheard of. I never experienced a grower contacting me to ask how the plants are doing. Much appreciated ! Your shippping is terrific. Your videos are so informative, and enjoyable, I feel as though I am visiting with a friend who is sharing advice with me. Very importsntly is the fact that you encourage customers to ask questions, and you find time in your busy day to respond. My interesst in these carnivorous plants is growing, and more will be added. As far as I am concerned, Sarracenia Northwest is the only place to deal with when it comes to carnivorous plants. Herb
