    @ the Lowes in the Bay Area here, I've seen all these:
    Darlingtonia:
    californica

    Dionaea:
    'Dente Traps'
    muscipula

    Drosera:
    alicae

    Nepenthes:
    ventricosa
    alata
    x 'Judith Finn'

    Pinguicula:
    primulifolia
    moranensis

    Sarracenia:
    alata
    x 'Judith Hindle'
    leucophylla

    All are from Gublers, one from NME (x 'Judith Hindle' )

    Actually a surprising number of Lowes in Oregon DON'T carry cps anymore. It looks like they got tired of plants just sitting there and not getting bought.

    They also stopped carrying APS media about a year an a half ago. I had to grab a bag of it while I was visiting a Lowes in Hawaii!

    Occassionally I find some sickly cobras, etc. I've gotten a few to survive. Those are the ones to go for.

    Always ask for a discount if your plants look bad. One of the checkout guys said. "Is it even alive?" They're fairly generous.

    I haven't tried this yet, but I heard somewhere that if the plants in those stores look particularly bad (even though they may just be in hibernation) you can talk to a manager type and get them to deal on the price. Might be worth a shot...

    I've been checking my local Lowes for Butterworts the past 2 weeks, so far none but they did have lots of typical VFTs, purple pitchers, Judith Hindles and Adelae sundews.

    I've only been to Lowes once, and that was last summer. I found one VFT that looked really bad (I bought it, lol). It was inside, under a shelf in the house plant section. It fell apart when I repotted it. I'll look for a Lowes next time we're out driving around. Hopefully they'll have some cheap darlingtonias.

    My local Lowes had carnivorous plants for the first time in almost a year. All they had were Venus Fly Traps, but it's still nice to see that they still have CPs

    The one near my house sometimes carry sarrs, sundews, pings, vft's, and small Nepenthes...most are in pretty poor condition, but usually rebound with proper care...they haven't had any in a while though, but it's probably best to check back month by month...my local Fred Meyer also get's VFT's, and a pretty nice sarr hybrid (don't know which one)...and the VFT's are usually in excellent condition...they only have them from late august-october/november though...I'd ask the people in the gardening section though
