Plant arrived healthy and very well packaged, as usual. I've never had to question the quality of the plants from SNW.
So excited to have this in our collection. She is a beautiful addition.
There appear to be tiny thread-size structures (3) & the tiny grasses (?) that grow around it are getting taller!
Arrived in perfect condition and started healthy growth within the day. As always the best plants from these guys!
looked dead(start of season) already has put out 2 pitchers and is growing well. was very happy with packaging.
Slow grower in the area I'm at. But this plant loves the bright sun and is very durable to low humity at times. Arrived in great condition and amazing packaging as well!
Please see my review for the Tarnok. Identical. Great plants. Love your service.
This plant took a bit to acclimate to the texas heat, but is growing well now.
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.
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.
