Wonderful plant.

I highly suggest you try it out, it's very beautiful and it comes packed with care.

Greg Butler
A great little plant.

It came well-packaged wrapped in lfs. I dug a hole with my finger, plug the plant in, and that was that. I'm already starting to see a new pitcher, and we are off to the races.

Joseph Hromy
Great pitcher plant

This pitcher plant is so interesting. It has shorter pitchers and grows closer to the ground. Quick service and a nice sized plant. Highly recommended!
