Same review for all plants on this order. They arrived quickly and were healthy and clearly established. Very happy with this and past orders and look forward to future orders.
Beautiful pitchers and fast delivery

Plant arrived well protected and very healthy. Plant has already produced 3 new leaves
Already 3 new pitchers in the past 3 weeks, growing great, nice and purple. Good for roach disposal.
My purpurea venosa is happily abiding with other plants from Sarracenia Northwest!
I will be buying from Sarracenia again. I purchased a few other plamts and they were well packaged. They arrived in great shape.
