I'm a bit worried, I have placed an order on this site as it had everything I was looking for and at an awesome price. But I failed to look up reviews before placing the order, and from what I've read the plants that they sell are not in the best condition. If anyone had experience with this seller please chime in. I want to know how the plants looked in you're opinion. Should I cancel my order and go with someone else? Thanks for any help.

They are usually viable plants however I have had to bring some back to life.
What did you order there sundews and cephs and sarracenia seem ok
It's the nepenthes that are a bit questionable imo

Dionaea from Cook's have always been disappointing for me, but their prices reflect the quality of the product (they have some of the cheapest prices on the web). The Sarracenia and Drosera I've received from them have been fairly nice.

That's a bit disconcerting, I hope the royal red will be ok. What drosera have you ordered from them before?
