    There appear to be tiny thread-size structures (3) & the tiny grasses (?) that grow around it are getting taller!

    Very nice pitcher plant

    Posted by Unknown on February 17, 2014

    Never grown one before but it arrived with many many small pitchers in great shape. It is doing great under a 65w grow plant bulb with 4 other venues fly traps.

    Well-packaged, premium quality plants!

    I am very happy with my purchase from you. I was somewhat hesitant to plant the new sarracenia in late December, but to my delight, the plants indeed survive the frost, and look great...can't wait to see how they perform in our summer weather/heat.
