    I hit two stores this morning. No CPs, there were a few decent house plants but I resisted. One had 8 or 10 inch terracotta pots which might be good for growing Darlingtonia californica but I didn't buy any.

    I was looking for 3-4" pots but didn't see any of those either. I picked up some "Coca-cola" drinking glasses (plastic, classic Coke shape) at two for $0.99. If I drill some holes in the bottom they'd make neat planters for tuberous Drosera.

    I went to my 99 cent store again. No luck anymore, all i saw was the carboard box that had the plants in them. Better luck next time.

    Did you catch which nursery/distributor the plants were from? How was the plant packaged/potted?

    I went back today and found 4 inch pots of healthy Sarracenia x 'Judith Hindles' and 3 inch pots of Drosera capensis from Booman Floral.

    I wish we had 99c stores here that sold CPs.
    I only see them in Home Depot and its always same VFTs for $4-5...
