I love mine!!!

Ordered one of these for a second time and even happier this time! The first time I ordered, only small was available, which was fine. I made a rookie mistake, however, and accidentally killed it :( fast forward about a year, I ordered another, this time medium size and now I know what to do not to kill it! Shipping was fast and very professionally wrapped, and there is even included, a top layer of moss on the soil to add more beautiful green coloring with the plant! I'm excited to see this one grow alongside my Lady Luck nepenthes!
