    Yup...that's the ol' Target mis-ID'ed Sarracenia. Its very irritating. You'd think the vendor could at least get the name right.

    It's a nice plant regardless. I've bought some gems from the megastores. I got a great N. ventricosa from one of them (it was tiny and green when I got it):

    You definitely can find some great CPs at big chain stores. What's great is that most people don't realize what they are, so the pickings are mighty fine!

    I saw those "cobra lilies" at Target the other day too. Probably at least 20 of them and all shriveling up.
