Great plant for beginners

This Venus fly trap shipped fast and arrived perfectly healthy and well packaged. No damage at all, and it is growing well in its pot. It already has a new shoot coming up that is getting bigger each day. If you're new to carnivorous plants, fly traps are the perfect plants to start with. I would definitely recommend CPN for their great selection and quality plants.

rosettes of love & teeth!

I love this type, best of its kind and survived with all its leaves being transported in a box of darkness but it's coming back strong! I already see new leaves springing out and hopfully the larger ones get bright red and larger!
On another note, I would have preferred this to be shipped potted and ordered the soil after the fact but it ended up being a wholesome experience and getting "hands-on" planting care practice.

First class condition

Very fast delivery. Plants in top-notch condition. Actually,, could not expect better condition or delivery. Will order other species soon. Ordered Akai ryu at same time. Delivery is highly comparable to orchids from first class orchid vendors.
