Blue Ridge Exotics - Review

by optique » Mon Jul 22, 2019 2:09 am

I stumbled across this east coast seller and was very happy with my orders and wanted to do a review. They don't sell a lot of CP's but they do sell a few of the more common ones. I got two Nepenthes and two Sarracenia, all four plants are very large and well established, and i have never seen such detail in packaging for plants. i would recommend Blue Ridge Exotics for your 1st Nepenthes or Sarracenia.

this is the pots they were shipped in.

i did not take photos of the scarracenia after unpacking but here is one of the Bug Bat after i had it a short time. i removed a few pitchers somehow a caterpillar got on it and did some damage.

Oh, wow. I really love the attention to detail of packaging! I've never seen pitcher protectors like that. Mostly, it's just bare root wrapped in sphagnum moss thrown in a bag and that's it :lol: But with Sarracenia Northwest, they would try and fit the Nepenthes in taped together plastic cups. At first, I didn't like the idea of trying to fit the large leaves in such a compact space but it protected it well and the plants arrived in pristine condition. I also really like how BRE hooks it up with that hanging pot where it's the good colored one :O

Yeah thats why i wanted to do a review i was watering today and noticed its is already unrolling a leaf and growing a pitcher 12days after shipping. Most neps I get in the mail don't hit the ground running. I did top off the pot with a little LFSM
