    Wow, I was worried for my delicate plant during the shipping process but I was surprised with the extra steps taken to ensure my plant’s safety! It arrived absolutely secure and undamaged. This included with a brief message from the shop owner for tips on raising a successful fly trap. I am thrilled with my purchase, highly recommend.

    So happy with the shipping/plant/quality/ everything! It arrived in a small 2″ pot i let it stay for about 2 weeks to settle and then moved it to this 4″ its slowly growing but beautiful and lots of new growth. It was carefully packaged, arrived very safe and healthy and is doing great about 2 months later! Definitely recommend!
