My Review For Wellspring Gardens (wellspring100)

by katya_dog1 » Wed Dec 10, 2014 7:04 pm

I ordered three plants. S. 'Dana's Delight', S. Leucophylla 'Tarnok', and S. 'Judith Hindle'. They arrived in great shape, they were potted with brown paper and a skewer to stop the pitchers from being flattened. As far as I can see, they are dormant, but look very good.

They are about five to seven inches tall. Any brown pitchers were cut off, presumably to stop inexperienced people from being upset.

For the price of the plants, and the price of shipping, this was very good, I would order again.

Thanks for doing this review! I have seen them on ebay a lot and have been wondering whether or not to purchase from them :)

They look great!

Just as a side note, brown/dying pitchers are also cut off to save shipping space and and reduce the chance of mold and fungus. :)

I just checked them out, and they have some fantastic plants at incredible prices! I might have to stretch my budget a little this month... :)

Thanks for the review. I was looking to pick up some of the Nepenthes they have for sale. Glad to know they are good people with quality plants.

Glad to know I helped some people.

@MrsMuscipla, yes that makes sense. I just assumed that from the many ebay reviews from other sellers, when a customer ordered a flytrap in December and said it was dead, with mostly just black growth. Then they post pictures, and it's fine.

I will remember to cut off any brown growth next time I send out plants. Thanks for the info!

I picked up a couple basic nepenthes a few months back, super cheap at $6 each and shipping was only $7 or $8. Everything arrived fast and healthy. I think they are located in FL, not 100% sure.

I'd give them 5/5 stars, great quality plants and unbeatable prices. I have almost all of the carnivorous plants they sell ha ha ha.
