    Never had a HD sell them... Walmart once, I still have an offshoot fo the capensis from there. And I got that only about 3 months after my first VFT, so proud to keep something alive that long!
    My Lowes occasionally gets them in. Check on the cactus rack. Found a bunch hidden on there.

    My local Lowes stopped selling CPs for about two years and finally started selling them again last year.

    I have yet to see a Home Depot offer any CPs for sale

    You could always ask about special ordering. All they have to do is look up on the computer what is available.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    You get Darlingtonia at your Lowes? I'm jealous. All I ever see around here are very sad looking VFT and maybe some S. Judith Hindle.

    As far as I have seen, there are still death cubes throughout the home improvement stores around here. However, the local Home Depot stopped carrying them last year because they decided they couldn't grow them in a dark corner...

    I've got it down to a science with my Lowes. They get new cps the second Monday of the month. Small cubes are 5 bucks, large cubes ten. After two weeks the prices are cut in half, after three in fourths. That's when I act! 1.25 a cube is too much to pass up, even if they're sad looking. By the time the second Monday of the month arrives they've either sold them all, or (which makes me sad) thrown them away. The only variance in the system is how many they get per month: It can be just a few, sometimes it's a whole tray. But they're always typical vfts, S. purp, D. adalae, and N. ventrata. I'd trade the regularity of the system for some new cp types.

    My home depot is the same as Clue's.
    My lowes on the other hand is selling these "terrarium kits" which contain one sarracenia bulb and one VFT bulb along with a thinmble of sphagnum moss.

    The garden centers around here usually stock CPs in the summer, fall, and early winter. Ironically, I've never seen them in the spring here, I guess it's because they are trying to sell plants that look good -- and let's face it, many temperate CPs don't look very marketable in spring. Lowe's had Neps last year but not this year, Home depot did not have any CPs last year but many this year. It all depends on the manager -- some see CPs as a waste of space that could be used for Orchids, Bromeliads, and any other 'easier' ornamental plants. I agree with others that have said that you should request CPs or ask when the next order comes in, without demand there is no supply.
    I should say something witty or remarkable but that would only prove my worth to society. To that I say meh!
