Very pleased!!

Just got it today it’s a little small, but very healthy, and dewy. Great color as well! Recommending to my plant friends.

Lost in the shuffle

Ordered multiple items which mostly were intact at receipt. Two small drosera fell out of the top of their rolled damp towels. I think I found them, but some material may have been lost or damaged by shipping.
