    I'm serious: trade with a friend. Also, a cutting from an adult plant get's ya there faster than germinating seeds. That and Home depot, Lowes, and **********.com

    By division is the quickest way. In winter chop your plant, preferably so each half has it's own growth point, and you have two adult sarras.

    Probably tissue culture. These are plants grown in laboratories in a kind of agar jelly. Venus flytraps and sarracenia cultivars such as 'Judith Hindle' are produced this way to prevent people from having to poach from the wild or to make sure sought after plants are produced en masse for the public.
