Stunning specimen

First time customer, wasn’t disappointed at all. Shipping was very fast , got my plant an day before originally due. Customer service was great , had some questions they were answered, multiple times. Actual plant specimen was absolutely outstanding and more than I expected and imagined for an small potted plant. Very healthy , great color , phenomenal pitchers , 5 in total. Various sizes of pitchers on plant. Will buy from again and recommend to other plant collectors. Packaged very nicely and securely.
