    Arrived in secure packaging with live moss around the roots- a welcome treat! Plant looks beautiful and healthy with a good root system even in the intense heat. Would buy again.

    My plants arrived quickly, very well packaged, and most importantly very healthy! So please with my new plants. I would have appreciated more direction in regards to the type of soil best suited for this type of carnivorous plant, but so far, it’s doing well.
