I have ordered plants from Carnivorous Plant Nursery two or three times now, and the plants I receive are always in great health and very well packaged. The only thing that keeps me from ordering more often is the high shipping cost. I can often have more plants shipped from the west coast for less than the cost to ship from here, and I'm less than 75 minutes away!

I am in the process of setting up an outdoor in ground bog garden for sarracenia pitcher plants. I wanted to include noncarnivorous associate bog plants, especially flowering plants, to add more visual elements and benefit pollinators. After searching all over the internet for bog plants I could only find two mail order nurseries that had a large assortment of the species I was interested in. This nursery has both the pink and the white flowered forms of the Grass Pink Orchid so I went with them. I placed an order for the following species:

Time to catch up on reviews. This past year was my first time ordering plants through the mail. The Carnivorous Plant Nursery was my first experience with bare root plants. I ordered a staghorn sundew, a lance leaved sundew, and a Utricularia nephophylla. I also received a bonus plant. There were no glitches in shipping. The plants arrived quickly and in good health. The plants adapted quickly to their new homes and are now flourishing.

Ordered one sarracenia and one venus flytrap. I feel like the plants were somewhat small for the money I paid, but they were healthy and packaged well. I also received a bonus plant, which was a pleasant surprise. I do recommend this nursery just because he has a lot of rarer varieties for decent prices.

I find it funny that another CP nursery owner would comment about plant size for the money. If you're a DG member check this out [[email protected]]
Wish I could post PICS of what I received from FlyTrapStore
on this thread.
What I received from Carnivorous Plant Nursery is LIGHT years ahead size wise for the money then what the crap FlyTrap Store sent me.

Healthy plants and quick shipping. Prices are a bit high for the size of plants received, but overall a good experience.

I bought some Nepenthes Miranda from Carnivorous Plant Nursery and I was surprised how they looked especially my last one with the large pitchers that were almost 11 in. I would purchase from this company again.

This nursery sent me beautiful plants that are growing well in my bog garden. Thank you. I would recommend to anyone who wants to grow this type of plants.

Last fall I ordered one sundew as it was my first experience with a carnivorous plant. I was surprised to receive two plants in the mail, excellently packaged, accompanied by very detailed instructions on plant care. Now, 7 months later, both sundews are doing very well, thriving on the fungus gnats in my home! I'm sure I will order again from Carnivorous Plant Nursery in the future.

As this is my first time with carnivorous plants, the selection on their website was overwhelming. Therefore my second phone call to Michael Szesze was to ask him to select 8 plants for my project. He did just that and even included a bonus plant. The plants look great and the primulifloras even have buds and flowers on them. Not sure what I expected since these are listed as "bareroot"; but they are lovely plants, minus pots. (I never realized how pretty this group of plants could be).

The idea of mini egg terrariums is cute! Not to expensive and they treat your plants well!

I had decided to create a small carnivorous bog garden. I contacted Michael (the owner) through his email and posed a number of questions about culture, hardiness for my area and his recommendations. He responded quickly and with considerable knowledge. From his suggestions I ordered a number of plants which he kindly put up as a special collection to which he added a couple of plants no charge and gave a monetary discount as well. The plants arrived in two days as scheduled and were carefully packed. All were healthly with good growth. I contacted Michael again about care after planting if the nights got cold and he again responded quickly. I recommend his company.

This is a WONDERFUL company. All of my plants arrived in prime condition and expertly packed and seem to be experiencing only a mininum of transplanting shock considering that they were bare root. I appreciated the thoughtfully selected bonus plants and excellent service as well. The owner made a point of e-mailing me to let me know when my plants would be shipped which was a gesture that I very much appreciated. I will definitely order from this company again in the future.

Absolutely wonderful man and so knowledgeable too. What an absolute pleasure to work with. If you call him and share your experience level as well as your growing conditions, he will help you make educated decisions regarding which plants to purchase to better insure your success. That was a pleasant surprise.
