    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.

    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.

    Pitchers and more Pitchers

    Posted by Nadia on June 12, 2021

    I honestly thought this plant wasn't going to do much. I was preparing myself for the worse. But with a little attention its started to give me more and more pitchers leaves look healthy too.

    Beautiful plant

    Love the shape and coloration. Came with two developed pitchers that took a dent out of the late spring gnat invasion in my bathroom. Seems to be adjusting well, although the new leaves are coming in red. Maybe it’s getting too much sun?

    Nepenthes x Gaya

    Posted by Eva Jade on May 28, 2021

    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.
