    Not a Number, I've been to Lowe's, and all that I can find is Mosser Lee. I tried looking for Chilean moss as well with no luck. I'm curious about BACP meetings. Can anyone go to it or is it members only? I've been looking around for the Red Piranha, and it is quite expensive for my taste. Not too sure if I'm ready to spend that much on a plant especially if I don't think I'm completely capable of handling it. But until I'm ready, these typicals will have to do! I'm also going to be at the San Francisco Botanical Garden tomorrow for a field trip (I'm in college) to further our knowledge on the diversity of plants, and I think they have carnivorous plant's, YAY!
    Terracotta is the typical heavy fired clay pot that is orange in color like what your plastic dish is made to look like. Unfortunately I couldn't tell in the pics if they were plastic or terracotta. You're fine then.

    If they're out now it can take six months or longer before they get more of either one. I'd recommend grabbing a bag or two of either one when you see them as this stuff flies off the shelves in the spring time and not to be seen again until late summer or late fall.

    You might want to mosey over to the Berkeley Botanical Gardens on May 11th as Barry Rice will be speaking there.

    Hey ZeroKool,

    I'm from Southern California and just recently bought some VFT's from the 99 cent store, and they looked alot like yours...and I just want to warn you that as they become more acclimated to your climate they WILL start producing smaller traps...so if you see this don't be alarmed. Also, I don't really know the SF area...but I know that a certain very respected carnivorous plant distributer(can't say on this forum) is up there somewhere and if you want more plants I would definitely go there, and even if you don't want more plants I would still go there because from the pictures I've seen it looks amazing and would probably be a great experience!! I wish that I lived closer so I could go there to visit the place!! I'm jealous!!!

    Hmm, listening to Barry Rice speak about CP's? What's so great about that (no offense)?

    Hey CPEnthusiast, think you can pm me the distributor? I would greatly appreciate it!

    I would love to hear Mr. Rice speak!


    Hey Andrew, you should start giving lectures and become famous!

    No reason at all unless you want the chance to hear the author of a quaint little book entitled "Growing Carnivorous Plants", is the editor of "Carnivorous Plant Newsletter" for the International Carnivorous Plant Society, noted carnivorous plant photographer and field researcher, board member of the North American Sarracenia Conservancy, proprietor of the online Carnivorous Plant FAQ and Galleria Carivoroa speak.
