SHIPPING UPDATE FOR August 4: our shipping department is in full gear, and all orders placed through close of business Friday, August 1 have been shipped. For the most up-to-date shipping information, please look on our Facebook page.

Check out all the new arrivals on our UPDATES page, and view our full line of plants from the links on this page to find the one that's right for you; the links to the right take you to individual types of carnivorous plants, the links to the left are for some of our special SALE items, and the links at the top of this page will let you see ALL of our items, including terrarium kits, growing supplies, and a few additional types of carnivorous plants as well! And remember, unlike many of our competitors, if it shows up on the web site, it's IN STOCK AND READY FOR SHIPPING! Out of stock items do not show up at all.

Why don't we offer FREE SHIPPING? While many suppliers of non-perishable goods can offer FREE SHIPPING on orders over a certain amount, they usually ship your order via ground service, which can take a week or more to arrive. This is fine for CDs, books, clothes, and the like; but since we deal almost exclusively in live plants, and we want our customers to receive their plants in the best possible condition, this delay is not feasible. Our standard method of shipping is via USPS Priority Mail, which has the added benefit of allowing customers to track their order from shipping to destination, giving you added peace of mind.

All plants are shipped healthy and ready to grow, and are guaranteed to arrive alive.

We look forward to receiving your order!
