    Ok, I was gonna buy a plant from this site, Should I go ahead and pay the extra few bucks to have them ship 2 in one container or stick with just 1?

    Or should I just go to Home Depot, or wherever else they sell them...Any suggestions, someone said Home Depot in one of these posts. Any other places?

    Was thinking about putting the trap in a Window Sill in a warm basement area where it's sunny/warm.

    Since PFT is nice enough to provide these forums, which are a fantastic source of information and community, it would be nice to buy your vfts from them.

    Having said that, I've bought from Home Depot and some others, too, usually because I was there getting someting else, and I have no self control whatsoever. But do the right thing. Order from here!

    Should I get the Common/typical VFT or the Dente that is advertised on this site. 1 per pot or 2?

    Suggestions?

    I recommend getting the Green Dragon as I've been rather happy with the growth of mine over the last 18 months.

    Whatever you do, I definately recommend getting the 2 plants in 1 pot, its just a little bit more money and gives you a better chance of having at least one happy plant.

    Also, I recommend getting your first plant from here, they are in much better condition than the plants at my Lowes. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Yeah, I full heartedly agree. They take great care on growing, packaging and shipping here. Phil and Lynda are two great people to deal with as well.

    I'd go for the double in a pot deal. Why not, it'll look fuller and larger while it's still young and then when it gets older you can just put it in seperate pots or a larger pot together.

    My suggestion on type...one of each type of course. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Just a note on home depot and the other stores that "carry" these plants. They don't take care of them. Not right or even at all sometimes. The plants from PFT have been cared for from the start properly, the ones at other stores use the wrong conditions and water if they water it so it may be half dead before you get home.

    On top of what everyone else has pointed out when you order from here they include a very detailed care sheet. Being that this is your first cp, it really is valuable information.

    I will do just that, I will place an order tomorrow morning from this site, I'll go for the 2 traps in 1 container.

    If these guys are rural to NC & SC I may be Ok, cause I'm just next door in VA......I plan on putting it in a Window Sill in a cozy basement anyway.

    And as far as Home Depot, etc. Your probably right, It's kinda like shopping for fish at PetSmart and asking the salesperson a question that you already know, and of course he'll give the WRONG answer. I refer to them as PetStupid.......
