    There are quite a few reputable CP sources on eBay. As alway with any sales caveat emptor.

    Almost all Sarracenia are relatively easy to grow as CPs go. 'Tarnok' is a S. leucophylla is a sterile mutant with strange flowers. Otherwise it is a leucophylla so if the plant is mature enough you should get the magnificent fall pitcher growth. If the purpurea is ssp. purpurea you can probably keep it outdoors in the winter. Ask.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Well, we were over that, everyone said sorry (well, just me, everyone else just accepted it) and I don't like remembering it, it was a God Awful experience.

    So sorry for getting mad at you JLAP, yes, I'm done chit chatting.

    It's OK.


    Diana! All Sarracenia are pretty easy to grow AND hardy if you respect their dormancy requirement and give them enough light! Sarracenia love LIGHT! True sun worshipers! They are so easy that I really suggest buying them bare root to save a little cash. That way you can also make your own mix to suit your needs. Places like Wal Mart or Home Depot/Lowes are great places to get a few common CP's, if you can get them before they start to etoliate.

    There's nothing wrong with buying plants off of eBay, just watch out because a lot of people way overprice them.

    I have seen some VERY reputable growers sell on ebay. And yes, I occasionally sell there and buy every now and then. Haven't had any problems yet. So I don't really see anything wrong with it .
    I don't want EVERY Sarracenia, just everyone that I see!!

    Are the sarrcs mentioned above really being tissue cultured? When I bought 3 years ago, the plants were wonderful. Would probably still have them if I hadn't gone through knee reconstruction and was unable to attend them properly outside last summer. None survived the summer.

    I've asked where these plants came from in the past and was told tissue culture. I didn't realize cps were now in tissue culture too.

    Almost everything is in TC, be it seed or meristem, particularly all of those common ones and cultivars you listed. Cultivars can only be cloned so TC is a fast way to mass produce them.
