    Check out this news story from the Salt Lake Tribune (look down the page a few paragraphs for the part about "My Carnivore")

    Now have a look at their website.

    $28,000 eh? That's some pretty expensive cheese.

    Neat display idea. I actually was looking at large 5 gallon size plastic witch culdrons at wal mart last halloween thinking a nep would look cool (albeit tacky) planted in one of those! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I don't think it's fair however that this company can say it's the first and only company selling carnivorous pets. There must be 100s of CP sellers. I guess most dealers don't reffer to them as pets but plants... I think most people think of their CPs a bit more than "just a plant", even though they are.

    Sometimes i'm embarassed by my state-mates. $20 for a VFT? That's a pretty thick line of hype and packaging they're selling.

    >Sigh<

    Is it just me ... or does the article tout him as being the first to market a "pet flytrap"

    Umm... in case I'm wrong (Correct me).... *THIS* website was based around the 'pet fly trap' idea?!

    YEARS AGO

    OK

    Now I'm a bit cranky...

    But that's OK! Really'! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Maybe a few members can find a moment to email the following addresses to let them know that the "pet" flytrap has been around for quite a while.. and they just wasted their money on an idea that was built years ago.

    Well their care page certainly does suck. Lots of pertinent info here... NOT.

    Wow, their advertising is even better than the old ads in the back of the comic books. I can't wait to read the information on the sundue (?) when they get those in. Should be entertaining in the least.

    The FIRST supplier of these plants.......!!!!! Phillip, sorry to disillusion you both, but these plants have been available for a few years prior to PFT even! LOL!

    The advertising highlights all that I hate about marketing CP as bizzare meat eating freakes of nature.

    At those prices, I sincerely doubt that they are going to cut too deeply into your clientelle, LOL. I didn't look too deeply into the accessory "Graveyard Kit" as I can imagine the worst :-)

    Pete, I am wiling to be that the comic book ads inspired this concept, probably with a little help from Phillip!

    Lol, this one is hilarious.
