Both plants arrived in good shape and are happily thriving in a warm, humid environment. Thanks for asking.
Plants arrived in perfect healty condition. Could not be happier with my purchase. Look forward to adding to my collection.
Their just wonderful, we keep them in the kitchen, love the idea of the combo, add so much more color. Everyone love the look. Lots of good comments. We are looking forward to the next combo idea.
I received my order quickly and the plants look great
My VFT and my judith hindle are growing really great new growth everyday.
I'm thoroughly enjoying the 4 plants I bought in the summer and this Fall. My Granddaughters are also part of this plant adventure. Having the plants mailed to us was easier than driving to get them. Thank You
Plants were packed beautifully and were bigger than I expected. The flytrap had a couple traps turn black but it's got plenty of new growth coming up to replace them, and the sarracenia has a new pitcher on the way up as well. I'll absolutely order again.
You guys are awesome. I have tried other folks, but have usually been disappointed in the plants or the shipping. Your shipping method is the best I have found. I only wish I lived closer to visit your place.
Both of my plants came in perfect condition. They arrived on time as well. They're really addicting to watch. Worth every penny. Thanks again Sarracenia!
We placed these in a sunny spot and placed in a ceramic pot with additional peat moss. The flytrap did well at first, sending up a lot of new leaves. But once we moved it to a permanent location that is cooler in temperature (but still in direct sun) all of the leaves fell off and it appears to have gone dormant or died. It may not work in our indoor house climate. *** RESPONSE BY SARRACENIA NORTHWEST *** I'm sorry to hear about the flytrap! To be fair, flytraps are not indoor plants. The combo pot consists of cold hardy plants for outdoor growing in full sun. Some direct sun isn't enough. They need 6 or more hours of direct sunlight. The issue could have also been your water source. You also mentioned about using additional peat moss. Some brands often add fertilizer to their peat moss. The peat moss needs to be free of fertilizer. If your water is high in minerals, that too can weaken your flytrap. All of this information is mentioned in the brochure that was included with your plants. I also checked our messages, and I didn't see any messages from you for assistance regarding your plants. As always, we're here to help you out in any way we can. We simply need your assistance in contacting us whenever you see your plants not growing to your liking.
