Healthy plants, not enough soil/incorrect description

Planted the starter set in a 6-in rose bowl as suggested with a false bottom made of lava rock to act as a water reservoir. All plants arrive looking quite healthy and very well packaged. The only major disappointment was (as other reviews have stated) that the amount of included soil was certainly not enough for adequate planting depth in a 6-in rose bowl despite the claims of the description . Because of this I had to buy additional components to make my own substrate, given that I ended up having to do this anyways you're really better off just buying the individual plants ( 1x Nepenthes sp., 1x Drosera spatulata, 1x Urticulara subulata) and making your own substrate versus this starter kit since you're going to have to make your own substrate anyways.

First time with Carnivores😀

I thought the packaging was great, all plants came healthy and well protected. My only complaint is the starter kit does not come with enough soil, two of those bags would have been perfect. 1 is not nearly enough. Found my self scrambling trying to find more soil locally. That being said I will be a return customer.

Great set to get started!

As someone with a weird phobia of fruit flies/gnats, carnivorous plants have always been on my radar. Never had a house with enough natural lighting till now though! Shipment went as expected with good updates. Plants arrived green and happy (as they could be in transport lol), little baby sized for my little baby terrarium. Lady Luck pitcher is already turning a vibrant red, and the drosera is already growing up. Will buy again once I see what works in my home :)
