I’m brand new to carnivorous plant growing. That being said, in my novice opinion these plants arrived very healthy and well packaged. They began growing extremely quickly once planted.

I’ve been growing indoors for now, trying to get the light levels correct. Making sure temp and humidity are nominal. In spite of my inexperience these plants from CPN have been robust.

While my moss skill aren’t so great yet, the sarracenia has almost formed it’s first trap already. I’m taking that as a win.

Sarracenia x popei

Nice little Sarracenia x popei. It did arrive quite dry. It’s taken a while for it to start growing, but it is growing. Looking forward to seeing it grow up.

So Far So Good!

Today marks 10 days since this plant arrived in the mail, and it's been a full 7 days since it has been planted in my carnivorous plant terrarium. I'm seeing new growth every day, which amazes me because I thought it would take a while for that to happen. I am very pleased with my purchase and will continue to buy from this nursery in the future!

Healthy plants.

All the plants were healthy and are doing well. I did expect them to be a little larger since I ordered medium plants.
