    I found some at the local hypermart (I don't have any currently, but I'm considering getting one.) On the container it says, "The Amazing Venus Flytrap," "Not taken from the wild!," "Greenhouse grown from tissue culture." On the back it says, "TPC Inc. P.O. Box 456, New City, NY." Does anyone know about this nursery? Are the plants regular or??

    Further, the local Walmart has some that look to be from a different supplier. (I cant recall what it said, and I didn't write it down) All look in really bad condition, almost dead.... yet there is one that's pretty small with two small traps. The hairs in the traps are just bumps.

    Here is a link to a 1997 message about the same subject of TPC Inc marketing VFTs at Home Depot.

    Try to avoid TC's. They are not very healthy.
    I'm still living off the corpse of the old world.
