Excellent Plant!
I order the King Henry not knowing much about Venus flytraps. I eagerly awaited its arrival and when it finally came I was impressed with how well packaged and how well it looked. Like the paper said one of the traps died due to transport but other than that it is doing extremely well. I will definitely be ordering more. Thanks!

amazing purchase
Came well packaged! This is the first FlyTrap I ever got, did tons of research before ordering and I was very impressed when they first arrived! It was very healthy when they arrived. The care paper they sent with it helped me out so much and basically answered all questions. super happy with this purchase and will buy more in the future :)

Great experience , awesome plant
My husband bought this plant for me and my son. He bought us a starter plant so we could watch it grow up. I have to say my son and I are loving this plant, and it's really cool watching it come out of dormancy.
It came so well packaged and in such great shape I was almost in shock. I am so glad my husband purchased this here, I can tell how much you love what you do. So much so that my husband just placed another order for our daughter since we know what a great plant will be coming.

A vibrant, young King Henry
I received my young, potted King Henry today. The plant arrived in excellent condition and appears to be vibrant, even though it is in dormancy. I'm very pleased :)

Will buy more
Very healthy plants, BIG and beautiful. I bought a B-52 from California Carnivores, it wasn't much bigger than a mans thumb nail. No joke! The price here was only $5.00 more. I'm very, very pleased.

What a fantastic little beast
This is an astounding plant. There was no apparent "shipment shock" and it was soaking up full sun with no blackening since the day it arrived. The traps are large and fast-closing, Even traps that have digested 2+ meals have not only reopened but catch prey with amazing shut speed. There is even an older trap with a black spot that caught and is eating a house fly.

I will also attest to how vigorous this plant truly is. When it arrived I counted 2 divisions. I've been caring for this little monster for only a month and now I can see at least 4 divisions. Even the little plants are succesful trappers. I can't wait to divide and repot this beast come next spring.

I received my starter King Henry on 7/20/16 and within one week it had grown considerably. The plant already had a few large traps, along with a baby plant. It's bigger than the young seed grown that I had ordered with it. Both vft were perfectly packed and shipped quickly. Love this flytrap. Will probably order another one soon.

I am not only pleased with the condition my plant arrived in and the thoughtful care sheet provided, but with the customer service! When the tracking info for my package stated "delivered," it had in fact not been delivered at all. Of course, this was the fault of the UPS company and not flytrapstore.com. However, Flytrap Store's Leah Miller expressed great concern and determination in helping me with contacting UPS and attempting to get to the bottom of it. She was extremely patient with my obvious frustration on the matter and was eventually willing to send me a new plant as the package had appeared to be lost. Luckily, that same night she told me so, the package was finally on my front porch (still unsure as to why UPS was so late and why it was processed as delivered days beforehand). Needless to say, I am extremely grateful for how hard she worked in helping me figure everything out and also answering my last minute questions regarding plant care. My plant looks beautiful and I would definitely recommend this company.

Excellent plant
I have had this plant for only a week. When I received it, it was packaged up very nicely! It was growing a flower stalk but after reading up on it, I have cut the flower stalk off and the traps are starting to grow numerously. During the first week, it had already caught two insects, the peat moss is turning green again, and the traps are really starting to take off. Can't wait to see what it's going to look like in another week or two...it is a really fast grower.

My husband got me one of these beauties for easter. I am in love! It is so gorgeous. I got a young plant so it has a lother of growing to do, but it just looks wonderful. It is obvious that these people raise their plants with so much love! It was packaged so thoughtfully. I definitely intend to purchase more places to from this site in the future.

My children LOVE the healthy hungry plants!
Just received the three flytraps in the mail today. I was so excited to receive the notification of the packages arrival, I jumped up and down at work! :) I got the King Henry for my sons birthday which just passed. He is 7, and let me tell you, he LOVES his little King Henry! Even named it "Cutie"! And, some of the traps were open so he fed his new "pet" right away!

My other son picked the Akai Ryu, and loves it! And I got the Dente Traps??? Anyhow all three plants look so healthy! And we all love them! The kids are saving all the stink bugs, and anything else they can find, to feed them... It's cute!
Thank you!

Extremly pleased!
Just received my King Henry and B52 in the mail today. Perfectly packed with detailed instructions. Although they are in their dormant state, they looked very vibrant, hardy and sturdy. Honestly speaking, they are the best I've seen. The receipt even had a personalized thank you! Great professional touch! Thank you!

Excellent Quality!
My overall review would be that the plant was in great condition, even after the stressful transportation stage. I didn't notice this before, but I took a picture of the plant when I first got it, and while I reviewed it, the picture revealed a small, new growing head! I used the picture to see where it was on the plant, and it was almost fully functional! If this plant is available, snatch it! It is an extremely vigorous grower, and has consistantly large traps. The last order I placed was during the summer, but this dormant King Henry is still bigger than they were (I may have failed to keep them alive). The shipping was not as quick as I thought, as many people said they placed the order on Monday, and they said it arrived on Thursday, or within the next three or four days. Mine was ordered on Monday and arrived in Saturday. Although, that is rather a review for the post office, not so much FlytrapStore.

Plant quality was an A+(I know those don't exist)!!! As of now, it is shooting out new traps, and boasting huge size. This, supposedly "starter plant," has traps that are already around 1 inch! I can't say I'm disappointed with my Venus Flytrap!

Currently, I am awaiting my Low Giant! Overall, the King Henry is underrated. I don't know, but many people say the sloppy growth habits on their king Henry's are awful, but mine has a... Bushy- some would say- appearance. Grandeur plant, and quite magnificent!

Henry is amazing
Wow! Huge! Right out of th box he was scoping out a fly. Shipping was very secure and package arrived perfectly. His first catch was quick and swift and my daughter was a bit nervous to get too close. I love it!

Love this flytrap!
I just recieved my King Henry plant yesterday, and it looks great! It is just coming out of dormancy, so it is a bit small, but i have no doubt that it will grow soon! It was packaged so nicely, there was almost no way that the plant could have been damaged during shipping. It also came with a thorough instruction sheet which is very helpful for new growers like me :)

Happy Plant!
Even though my King Henry arrived during its dormancy period, it was lush and green and packaged with love. He seems to be doing exceedingly well – new growth occurred almost immediately after repotting, and he's just starting to come out of dormancy with traps that are already upright and tall. You guys at FlytrapStore never disappoint!

Awesome Plant
An exceptional flytrap clone that consistently does well for me. If you don't mind its sloppier growth habit you'll love it. The trap in the photo was 1.9"!
