    That's basically what I did before I accidently stumbled onto the discussion forums - tap out Lowes, Home Depot, etc... Then I discovered the Trading Post and scarfed up what I could!

    The following nurseries/distributors have been identified as suppliers of CPs in the United States to Lowes (L), Wal-Mart (WM), Home Depot (HD), Orchid Supply Hardware (OSH), Armstrong's (A), and Meijer's (M). Some of these stores (like Meijer's) are regional and not nationwide or international chains.

    * note I will be editing this to fill in identified species, regions etc. Moderators feel free to edit as seen fit with any information updates you have. Booman's is the only nursery identified that can be confirmed they propagate their own plants - the others may be reselling plants from AgriStarts III in Florida. In order to not clutter up the thread please PM me or one of the mods with updates.

    I spotted carnivorous plants sold at a drug store (which I bought 4 of them) from Booman Floral of Vista, CA. What you they were selling were plants you can add to your list. Two particular plants being sold was Sarracenia minor and an identified Mexican Pinguicula hybrid and it is because of its succulent leaves, which is a characteristic of Mexican pings.
