    look about 1/3 of the way down.

    I'd like to write a polite letter asking them to stop selling the poor babies. But I don't know where to start. I don't even know what kind of sarracenia they are.

    can someone help me out?

    Presto Leucophyla pitchers are used alot in flower arangements. I wish they would stop using them too, but if they are growing the plants then there really isn;t anything we can do. Now if they are collecting them from the wild then something could. I have read an article where they were wild collecting hundreds of leucos for that trade. I do not know where to start either I hope someone can help.

    Very sad! But, in a world where blowing up babies is a valid religious exercise, I guess it's to be expected.

    I've bought other items from that vendor before (animal parts), and asked specifically about the pitcher plants. Sadly, the person I spoke to didn't know if they were from a gardener's propagation or from the wild.

    They look like they might be leucophylla pitchers. That's a lot of money for dead pitcher art.

    Yeah, they are definatly S. leucophylla. Also everything there is real expensive there.* I could make most of that for free. The leaves are simple, leave them in a pool over winter. They also sell seahorses and pipefish.....

    Bravo setep!

    Are there even enouch leuco's left out there for them to be wild collected?
