    Pinguicula x Aphrodite

    Posted by MB on February 7, 2019

    Superior packaging of a spectacular plant. I was actually overwhelmed at unboxing. There were easily 10-15 sprouting Aphrodite throughout the growing media. Sarracenia Northwest is supernatural.

    Beautiful plants!

    I ordered a few different Butterworts. When they arrived I was astonished at what good shape they were in and how mature the plants were. I was expecting a small plant but these were good size and very healthy. I've paid much more for far less elsewhere. I'll be ordering from Sarracenia again.

    Nice addition to my office at work

    Posted by Dave F. on January 7, 2019

    Plant arrived in very good shape. It is now growing nicely on my desk at work. It has plenty of dew, seems to have gotten larger, and has even captured a couple of gnats.

    Couldn't be happier!

    This was my first order from Sarracenia Northwest and I could be happier. The ping was larger than most that I have gotten from elsewhere and very healthy! I will be buying from these folks again!

    Damaged in shipping

    Posted by Mary Ann Miklos on June 20, 2018

    All of my plants were carefully packed, and the directions for opening plants are excellent. In spite of the care taken both in packing and opening, this poor plant arrived damaged. The main plant was on its side, out of the soil, and it's smaller side plants were broken off. I replanted the main plant, which seems to be stable, and I put two of the small plants in peat pods to see if they would survive. They are not doing very well. I have a similar plant from my previous gift, and it is my favorite as it graces me with a lovely purple flower every few months. It also makes smaller plants much like a spider plant. I have had some success potting two of these plants. I plan to gift them to my son, who introduced me to these wonderful plants (although he does not have any himself). I really recommend this plant to everyone. My orchids love it as well as it keeps pests small bugs/flies away from them.
