The plant arrived in good condition. Placed the plant in a tray of water after receiving it, it's growing very well and is 19" tall in my greenhouse the sarracina leucophylla green is very beautiful Thank You for the lovely plant Lawrence Logoteta
This is by far my favorite American pitcher plant. Only the hurricane creek white variety triumphs it. As always it came in very great no problem at all. I love the fact that they don't go dormant early like my yellow trumpets and they show off their best pitchers in late summer. I am really digging this plant it's just so beautiful. The white really makes it look like a flower! I will be buying alot of them next year hahaha. RECOMMENDED
