    Where do you get your Nepenthes from?

    Hey guys,
    I recently fell in love with Nepenthes, and decided that I wanted to try growing some. Unfortunately, I've been having very little luck finding any.
    I saw people posting online that they bought theirs at Home Depot and Lowes. I wasn't able to find any at Home Depot, and didn't want to risk making a long trek to Lowes if they also stopped selling them. At the only plant nursery near me, they only sold Nepenthes ventrata.
    I refuse to accept the fact that I will only ever have one species of Nepenthes in my collection.
    Does anyone know if Lowes still sells Nepenthes? If not, where do you guys get them from?

    If it helps at all, I live in the Atlanta area.

    You are not allowed to mention CP vendors on this site, but a generic place to get nepenthes is ebay. You can always find the common ones there and sometimes rarer ones for good prices as well, although depending on how much attention a certain auction gets, prices can get ridiculous.

    Try here: Nepenthes ? FlyTrapShop Andrew has good prices and he is the webmaster here at Terra Forums. In this case it is alright to discuss the vendor.

    But I'm still waiting for him to restock N. madagascariensis!

    Nonetheless, great prices on them, and he has Judith Finn, which I have found to be strangely uncommon.

    I've been a little wary of buying online, because you can't really see what you're getting into. I'm also paranoid that it will have died before it even reaches me.
    In your experience, how roughed up do the plants get during the shipping process?

    Nepenthes, and pitcher plants in general, handle shipping very well and will usually still look perfectly healthy after being in a box for several weeks. I have ordered plants from several different vendors and all have been packed very well with no risk of damage short of the box being run over by the delivery truck.

    You just never know when a delivery truck is going to run over your boxes. I mean, it happens to my packages on a regular basis.

    Well true, but the probability of that is unlikely
    Can you pm people vendors? Or is that not allowed too? I really wish we could mention vendors here.
