Growing like a hydra

Bought the medium sized vft, only one trap was closed upon arrival and it was in great condition.

Received Feb 16th and image where one trap is dead is Feb 26th (3 more new traps are growing :D )

Very Good Nursery!

My plant arrived very happy, the packaging was fantastic. Customer service was top-notch, I had a few questions for them and they were very fast at responding and are very knowledgeable. My plant is growing very well!

I ordered a Venus fly trap.

It arrived in a plug of moss I guess in good condition. I was disappointed with how tiny it is. It is still alive and slowly growing. Still tiny. I don’t plan to buy from here again.

Not What I Was Hoping For

I bought this as a birthday gift for my sister who loves Venus Fly Traps. I was excited to find a company that was NOT Amazon, that I could support and that would provide her with a beautiful product.
Somehow I missed the fact that it would not arrive already potted. I would never have bought it had I realized that. My mistake.
Also, when it arrived there was some brown on it, but she figured she could get it potted right away. Unfortunately, the recommended products to plant with it were not readily available to her where she lives. That is also something I didn't know until after I made the purchase, and it was stated in the shipping confirmation.
I'm sure they're usually beautiful plants and that it's a good company. But for my sister it ended up being a pain and it isn't looking so great.
