    I've looked in my local HD and lowe's for over 3 years and except for the occasional unnamed nep, have never found any cps

    It probably depends on who the regional supplier is. Southern California seems to carry them throughout the year. Around this time of year you'll usually find them more often because they are vaguely associated with Halloween.

    One LACPS member recently reported a good assortment including Nepenthes at the Torrance Home Depot.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Its hit or miss I guess...None of my local HD's sell them and the few Lowes in the area only sell adelaes, typical VFTs, and purps during summer months. I noticed the one closest to me stopped getting shipments in by the end of August. Luckily they also put the remaining ones on the $1 shelf.

    Our Lowe's supplier apparently learned it's not a good idea to ship Cobras during the summer. So they are only shipping them during the cooler months.
