Hello,

Has anyone had experience buying from carnivero?
They have a very big selection and good pricing.

I’ve never heard of them before please let me know!

The "good pricing" you see is for neps the size of a dime to a quarter. Put your money on FB pages, FTC forums, Matt and Leah, and possibly look around r/savagegarden. Cook's carnivores pricing is better for sarrs/vfts, and for Neps it's really best to get them from NE. They have more competitive pricing and always 'upsize' their plants. What carnivero might do to you is 'downsize' your nep so you pay more for a smaller plant.

Carnivero is a great company and I highly recommend them. I’ve met the owner in person and he is a very knowledgeable guy. The plants always come in great shape and their prices are also very affordable.

Ok, I was mainly looking at native exotics next for nepenthes, but was looking around for other options before I pulled the trigger.
Thanks

I have got four Nepenthes from Carnivero over the years, all are very healthy good sized plants. Only complaint i can even think of is having to look at all the "out of stock" on the website.

I’ve bought from Carnivero multiple times and have always been extremely pleased with my plants. Besides from Neps, they occasionally even have some rarer sarrs and VFTs available too. Their plants are healthier than NE’s, IMO.

I've had decent experiences with them too. They're pretty transparent about what you get. They've also offered some things I couldn't hope to find elsewhere. Size could be bigger on some things but the sizes never really bothered me. Honestly NE's way of handling "releases" irritated me so much one time I won't use them on principle.

I bought my first Nep and cp from them. It was a N. Sanguinea and I was very pleased with my order(as is slightly suggested by my username) NE is good if you want to know exactly what you’re getting. I don’t know where hungry carnivores got his opinion from.
