    Here is a list of species I have come across just this Spring while at local nurserys and hardware stores.

    D. muscipula
    N. X ventrata
    Unknown Nepenthes hybrid
    Unknown Nepenthes hybrid #2
    D. capensis
    D. binata
    D. adelae
    D. spatulata
    P. primulflora
    P. 'Titan'
    D. californica
    S. purpurea
    S. purpurea 'Brunswick Beauty'
    S. rubra
    S. 'Dixie Lace'
    S. 'Scarlett Belle' I think that's what it was called
    And one other popular Sara. cultivar, I can't remember the name right now.

    Nothing really spectacular, but still a fairly large variety for a town of 120,000 in Northern Colorado.

    Me too!!!!!! Who ever heard of a gourmet CP being sold in a retail store? What size pot is that and how tall is that plant? Mine are very red and happy, a year old, but only an inch tall, with no inclination to flower. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    The plant pictured is about 5" across and 2.5" tall. The flower stalk is creeping up to 5" tall now, with another following. The plant is in the usual 3" pot, in a [surprisingly] clean peat substrate, sitting in shallow water. I'm getting ready to propagate this fellow in the near future so's I have more plants to stare at and trade.

    How old are they? Mine is almost a year old and I am about to take more plant pics, including this one. Is yours indoors?

    I found a stash of Dente VFTs in a Viera WalMart last year... I had one going strong for several months, but fungus took it down over dormancy. There's also a rack of massive 4''+ pitchered N. ventricosa at our WalMart.

    The best I found were:
    S. alata (different var.)
    VFT 'Red Dragon'
    N. alata and miranda (huge)
    D. spatulata 'Fraiser Island'
