    By that point, the only way you're going to find many more is by trading. There are a couple places that sell them, but rarely more than a couple of species. If you have any to trade, I'd suggest asking in the trading forum here.

    Question

    That did help, my collection has now expanded by 4 species...or it will once i recieve my order! Its kinda hard to trade unfortunatly when you are first starting out. I have an abundance of U. livida and U. sandersonii but everyone else has those.

    If anyone else knows of any sources I would love to hear.

    Thanks

    Well, you know U. sandersonii and U. livida are variable. Maybe you have a clone that someone else doesn't have. Post a photo of the flowers when it happens, and you never know what might happen from it.

    If you have lots of money to spend, try bestcarnivorousplants.com. They don't have a huge list of utrics, but they have some really unusual ones that might bag you some good trades.

    If you have 16 species you're doing pretty well. Most just aren't that common in cultivation. If you order plants from lees botanical gardens, make sure you positively ID them before passing them on to people. I have orders from him before and got misidentified species - his U. caerulea and U. simplex are especially suspect.

    If you do well with the plants you have, email me later this spring and I will see if I can help you out.

    I did email bestcarnivorous plants with an order and have yet to hear back [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] but Im hopefull! I will let everyone know once I have plants to trade. Im also working on a web page right now I suspect that may be one of the better ways to increase my collection and maybe get others into carnivorous plants, right now im working on getting pictures for it.

    Dodecatheon,

    Any possible ideas on what his simplex might be?
    Whatever it is, it's a very fast growing plant.
