I went into Target today on lunch and went to their limited houseplant section. Usually there's wanna be bonzai and green capped lucky bamboo. With your assortment of unlabeled generic tropical folliage and a few bromeliads of course. Well, to my surprise I saw Sarracenia, apparently 'Judith Hindle'. The leaves looked pretty nice for a plant in target. Now, realize these are on the bottom shelf, basically on the floor in the middle of the store far far far away from the windows that don't exist. That's not really the shocker. These nice Sarracenia were in glass vases, being sold as house plants. Still not surprised...but, they labeled them as Cobra Lillies, and gave a whole story about Darlingtonia. Strange that such nicely cared for plants for once were completely mislabeled.
My question is why would they sell these this time a year as houseplants? It makes no sense, not only will they probably just sit in a corner somewhere and not get enough light, but this time a year they should be getting ready for bed, not hanging out in front of the fire place.

Makes no sense to me what so ever.
So...I went to Lowe's and ended up getting a Darlingtonia. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] $12 bucks cheaper.
