    After I get my report card money, I'm either going to try and purchase a D. binata (multifida "extrema") or D. scorpioides. I really like the "Spiderweb of Doom" look of the binata version, but I hear that scorpioides are easy to grow and propegate, and have faster-moving tentacles.

    If you have grown them, which would you recommend? Also, I'm having a bit of trouble locating online retailers that sell these plants. The shipping costs from California Carnivores is killing me, and I haven't been able to find them anywhere else.

    I found a site called Sarracenia Northwest, which offers both. Has anyone had any experience from them?

    If you wait a few months till gemmae season you can get D. scorpioides for free from the trade forum.. I think BigCarnivourKid has singlehandedly spread that plant to the entire forum.

    As for the D. binata form, if you PM me I can get you some leaf cuttings for postage.

    Steve is right, those are pretty easy to find trades. Sarracenia NW is a great company, though - I stop by their booth at the farmer's market whenever I go home to Portland. I've made purchases from both Sarracenia NW and California Carnivores, and while I love Peter's book and his selection, Jeff and Jacob at SNW have CC beat hands down for customer service and shipping as far as I'm concerned.

    PS - Don't buy their D. multifida extrema because then they'll run out again before I have a chance to order... :P

    Hehe, alright. I'll see if I could get a cutting from Steve. I'll keep my eye out this fall for gemmae.
