Healthy and Adorable

This was my first order from Carnivorous Plant Nursery and I was not disappointed! My plant arrived healthy, very carefully packaged, and with multiple pitchers that did not get damaged during shipping. I’m already getting new leaves that are huge! Thank you! I will be coming back))


Came well packaged. The plant showed no sign of stress. I will purchase again from Carnivorous Plants.
