Recent order from California Carnivores Review

by jrmc114064 » Tue Jun 12, 2012 3:50 am

Recently got a S.Flava and S.Purpurea ssp. Venosa and was happy with the service and plants. Placed the order Thursday and it shipped Friday promising three day shipping and even Sunday in between the delivery and shipping date it came. It was packed nicely and had enough water for the shipping period. The plants were both healthy and beautiful. I recommend California Carnivores to anyone looking for a nice CP.

P.S. Sorry if I wasn't descriptive enough this is my first site review.

Here are the two plants.

And also thanks for the extra few sundews!
I am so excited I wet my plants! :)

Thanks for the review!

California Carnivores is Peter D'Amato's gig; they know what they're doing. I always get solid plants when I order from them. :)

Peter is the author of this book, and after so many years it's still the most recommended CP book out there:

The taller sundew in the front in the above picture with the forked leaf looks like d. binata.

I think you may have to wait a little more to know for sure sundew don't take that long so lets say 1 month give or take
my guess is a sundew with a triangular like spatulata such and such that was just for reference

Tis a capensis seedling, get them sprouting all over my collection...

Can't wait to see Peter speak about the new edition of "The Savage Garden" at ICPS 2012.
