This is one of the most beautiful butterworts we've encountered. It has a tight rosette of large, broad green leaves. The leaves are very sticky and captures lots of gnats, mosquitoes, and fruit flies. The plant can grow up to 5 inches across. It also looks like a flower until you see it produce an actual flower. It's like a flower within a flower. Butterwortception!

    Nice addition to my office at work

    Plant arrived in very good shape. It is now growing nicely on my desk at work, along with a Pinguicula x Aphrodite, a Cape sundew, and a Spoon-leaf sundew. My own personal savage garden. All four plants were from Sarracenia Northwest.

    I normally love the packaging, this time the plant was attached to the tape. Even though I was very slow and careful while unwrapping, it came out from the pot with the tape. I carefully reinserted it, and so far it seems fine. New leaves have opened, it is thriving with the other beauties I have. all my previous purchases are happy and growing, giving me great pleasure. thank you.

    It eats the bugs

    In Texas small flying insects are a constant whenever you have plants. These were a suggestion from a fellow who keeps a greenhouse full of carnivorous plants to use inside the house he was not wrong. Good houseplant indeed
