FTS "25 baby VFTs for $25" Review- 5 stars 10/10

by WaSundew » Mon Jan 13, 2014 9:45 pm

Recently, I had purchased (1 order) "25 baby VFTs for $25" from the Bargain Bundle section at FTS. I cannot describe how happy I am about my order!!! They quickly sent me a very VERY generous 25 flytraps of all different cultivars- they actually sent me *wait for it* 72 Baby flytraps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A WHOPPING $0.44 per VFT :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ! Now, when they say baby, don't take this lightly- over 25% of my shipment barely had a rhizome, true seedlings. Most of the order consisted of plants with very small rhizomes.(I am NOT complaining though!) Yet I even got about 5 or 10 quarter sized plants! Now for the cultivar diversity- the order consisted of about 50/50 typicals/dentate group VFTs. It may be too early to tell, but I believe one of the VFTs is FTS VFT Lunatic Fringe (http://www.flytrapcare.com/store/venus-fly-traps/flytrapstore-venus-fly-traps/fts-lunatic-fringe-venus-fly-trap), which I will show in a picture following my review. Make your own conclusions about it! It was one of the larger plants I was sent. The shipping was very quick, and quality was 110%. Price is VERY reasonable, and the personal note on the order was a great touch. I forgot to mention- they even included a free plant label (not pictured)!

My Ratings
Shipping Speed: 10/10 -I purchased the $6.2 option, 3-5 days. Package came in 3 business days.
Plant Quality and Price: 10/10 -Not one trap was browned, despite their dormant condition. Do I need to say more about how great of a deal this was???
Description Accuracy: 11/10 (if possible ;) ) -Plants were baby, but they sent me a couple larger ones.
Communications: 13/10 -Leah replied to every email*
Overall: 11/10

*I emailed Leah asking when the "25 babies" would be back in stock, for FTS was when I found the bundle. She put one in stock for me, a special order! They sent me a tracking number immediately after I ordered, and sent out the package right away!

A special thank you goes out to Leah for her kindness and helpfulness. Keep it up Leah!
I will definitely order again!

So happy to hear that you're pleased with your experience :) That really makes our day :mrgreen:

The seedling with the short teeth is not likely Lunatic Fringe, but probably a seed-grown flytrap. We have hundreds of seed-grown flytraps with short or sawteeth that we often include in 25 packs, mystery boxes or as seed-grown flytraps. So the good news is that you likely have an unnamed variety that is exceptionally unique ;)

Thanks so much for the review!!! I did include a variety of very cool Seed-Growns- should be fun to see how they turn out. :) There are also some named cultivars in there, but we just include them as baby regular flytraps. We really appreciate the time you took to review us...awesome! -Leah
