Troy Oliver

Healthy, great looking plant. Ordered the medium, and was well worth it.

Lovely Nepenthes

I ordered two medium-sized plants for my nephew. They arrived promptly and in great condition. Leaves were bright and healthy, and both plants had multiple mature pitchers, along with additional budding tendrils. The plants definitely exceeded my expectations in terms of size, development, and health! I'm really happy with the purchase.

David Bailey

Plant is much bigger than I thought it would be. I ordered the medium and it has several mature traps. Shipping was fast! Will order from them again in Spring.
