Lovely specimen that arrived, along with others, in perfect condition. The service was impeccable, constantly updating me via email and phone as to where and when I should expect the delivery.
Being a carnivorous plant grower when I was young, these new varieties of flytrap weren’t readily available and I had to have one along with the ‘bog’ standard version I ordered.
