Great nursery sourse

Fantastic selection. The products I ordered are thriving and growing well six weeks later. Shipping was quick, and the plants all wrapped with great care for their journey from Maryland. My guests all walk out on my deck to marvel at the sundews, Venus fly traps and pitcher plants .

Fly Traps

Plants arrived timely and in great shape! Thanks Michael

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.
