    Such a cute plant. It came with two pitchers & it's already getting two more. I'm very happy with my new plant.

    My plant came in healthy and with decent pitchers. They have been with me about a month and the pitchers are still in good shape, with strong light they are turning a nice peachy orange.

    Always wanted one!

    I saw these in a botanical garden and became obsessed. It’s a hard to find plant for me. Especially to find one that he healthy. Arrived beautifully packaged. I’ve had it about a month and got 2 new leaves... one has unfurled completely while the other is still popping out. Had 3 adult Pitchers and I have 3 small babies growing. Can’t wait to see how big this one gets.

    Got the small one and it came in a lot bigger than I was thinking with a few pitchers. Has acclimated well and is growing like a beast!
