    The DIYs in the States seem to sell most CPs in some sort of acrylic coffin (as pinglover on the ICPS board calls them). The containers are supposed to serve as a mini-terrarium. The main reason I suspect is just to keep the plants from drying out in shipment and to keep curious fingers out and customers from feeding the plants all sorts of rubbish.

    Try Home Depot, they carry that "brand" (Bloomrite).

    I've bought "packaged" vft's before. And I have to say that this brand has the best container. I have a feeling the plants are grown in a partial tube early on. Most brands that I've seen (the boxes, or cubes) end up with crushed parts that get caught during assembly. These all came out of the tube in prime shape. I don't think the pot can slide in the tube either which makes it nice for shipping.

    Omg these things have been hanging out for about 2 days and they are pure breed killers. The 4 new plants have already caught 12 flies on their own. Ugg I hope they don't kill themselves.

    Just so folks know, I got a flytrap from the Flytrap Shop that looks just like that third pic down. Brilliant red traps. Its a beaut. So, you can always get flytraps there which helps support the forums.
