    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.

    Mexican Butterworts

    Posted by Ramon Nelson on March 1, 2015

    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.

    Eats ALL the gnats

    Posted by Unknown on November 20, 2014

    Arrived in good conditions, seems to have adapted to my south windowsill quite well, and has an amazing sheen to it when it's healthy and dewy. I got a couple butterworts to see if they'd make an impact on the fungus gnats that habitate my other plants, and within a few days there was barely a square millimeter without gnats stuck to it. I was concerned this would be akin to over-fertilizing it, but it seems to have taken the feast in stride. A vibrant plant that thrives, I recommend it.
