    Just this weekend I saw VFTs from Bloomrite (Nursery Man's Exchange), Gubler's and Altman's Plants down here in LA.

    What I haven't been able to find for over a month is perlite or peat without the crummy Miracle-Gro. Well I did huge bags of perlite Sunday but I have no place to store anything that big.

    The only strange thing I have noticed is that the Wal-Marts in my area have not supplied VFTs in a LONG time. They do have peat and perlite (Schultz brand) though.

    Hmmm, I'll have to try Wal-Mart - hate them worse than HD or Lowe's. I even emailed Scott's and they gave me a list of places near me that supposedly ordered the Scott's brand (no Miracle-Gro). Nothing.

    As for which VFT is best? They're all about the same. You have to look carefully at every plant and just find the healthiest looking ones. Sometimes you'll run into a cultivar or two - Lowe's looked like they were 'Dentate' types (Gubler's). I found a 'Cupped Trap' at HD back in Jan (Gubler's). Altman's and Bloomrite/Nursery Man's Exchange seem to have more of the pots with multiple VFTs in them. I pickup an Altman's pot that's overflowing with VFTs - impossible to count until I get around to picking the rhizomes apart. There has to be at least six plants in there - maybe even a dozen. But go for the healthiest looking ones.

    I suspect Bloomrite and Gubler's are just reselling VFTs from AgriStarts III - a huge wholesale nursery / tissue culture factory in Florida. Maybe Altman's too, but from their website they make it sound like they do their own propagation of VFTs. Well, Gubler's makes it sound that way too.
