    Hey Dave!

    All Lowes must get their shipments on the same day. I went into mine to pick up a nice patch of peat moss and saw fresh stock of CPs! I wanted to buy them all, but left with only one S. Purpurea. I have to admit, the vfts looked great, but that's only because it was their first day at the store. In a week I'm sure they will be leggy and weak looking from lack of good water and light.

    I'll post a pic of my Lowes rescue tomorrow! Good luck and keep us updated!

    ================edit========================================

    I repotted mine as soon as I got it home in the new peat moss. I didn't like that fake LFS it was in, it smelled a little funky. However, when I finally unraveled all of the growing media, there were no roots!! I was shocked. It's not surprising because the plant looked very loose in the pot. We will see what happens with some proper care.

    Same here mine just got some in this past few weeks. But they were all VFT. I requested that they get some Nepenthes and other genius and they said they would but not this time. Good luck to both of you.

    So far it is still standing up tall. I am using the water from my built in refrigerator filter for now and it seems to be doing ok. Fingers Crossed

    Its 3rd day with me and still looking good. Loving the sun we are getting the last few days. The west coast is starting to grow on me.



    I did move the greenshouse into the back yard. It gets the most sun all day.



    Can't wait to get some more plants. Anyone around the Olympia/Lacey area know if we can buy CP's locally?

    The west coast is starting to grow on you, hah. Go visit La Push or the Hoh Rain Forest or pretty much anywhere else up there. Then see what the west coast does to ya.

    I envy you Washingtonians, but I do adore Colorado too. The weather here is just too extreme to practically grow plants outdoors without a real greenhouse or something.
