Love my plant!!

My plant arrived perfect and wrapped with extreme care. I planted it the next day and it’s been doing great ever since. Will definitely order again. Thank you so much!!!!!

All hail the King

Arrived timely.
Arrived healthy.
Used the suggested soil (I have made my own before and used another premade) and so far, things are moving along swimmingly.
Looking forward to it producing more traps.

It died within about two weeks.

It looked alright. Then came back from a long weekend and the traps are blackened. I left a steady drip from my rain barrel to keep everything moist and it looks as though it won’t make it through.
