    I ordered a nepenthes ventricosa and it arrived in great shape due to spectacular packing. I have had it about a month and it's put out a new leaf and is growing 2 new pitchers. Very happy with all the plants I've received from you guys. You're my first stop when shopping for plants online. Almost my whole carnivorous collection came from your nursery, thank you
