    All my carnivorous plants have came from Sarracenia Northwest. They have always been good, healthy plants.

    Excellent doing business with SN. I received my plants in great shape, well secured in the package safe and sound, with full tracking details. The plants are nicely potted and very health, well grown plants. I look forward to the full summer display of these interesting plants. Thank you PS, I love the youtube videos.

    Very nice plant and much larger than the one I first bought that died before buying the 3 tapes. It's like the Sundews that are doing great with the information that I have learned from the tapes. I now feel that I have the horse before the cart since I've been viewing and studying all 3 tapes.
