    My experiences in Northern VA:

    Home Depot: Just VFTs from tissue culture in the non-winter months. Both typical and dente. Amazingly healthy (I guess they got bought fast enough to not wither away).

    Lowes: The common stuff. VFTs and Cobra Lilies. D. adelae. S. whatever-is-most-common (flava and/or judith-something I think... sometimes purpurea). N. ventricosa probably (tiny and unlabelled, no pitchers). I've never seen a nep hanging basket.

    Some Home Depots have them and some don't... just like with WalMart, Lowe's, Target and (apparently) Kroger.

    endparenthesis, that's Judith Hindle.

    I live in BC(Canada)and our HD doesn't have them,but Mabudons HD in a different part of Canada does.When I went to a few HD's here just like a week ago and I asked if they had or ever had CP's they guy said "what's a Carnivorous Plant?"and he was the flower guy! So I left right away,lol.I also checked WalMart but they've never had then,neither have Rona.It sucks*Trapper7*

    Okay now, get this! I was in St. Louis last week and decided that since I had a few minutes I would stop in at a Lowes to check out their Carnivorous Plants (since there are hardly any Lowes here in Chicago). Well, when I walked in, there were two isles blocked off because they were using forklifts to topstock stuff. And wouldn't you know it, one of the isles had CP's!!! But I wasn't allowed to get to them!!! I asked one of the associates if I could go look at the plants, but the girl told me that the isle will be re-opened in about 15 minutes. I waited, and waited, and waited, and about 30 minutes later, the isle was still blocked off!!! I had run out of time and wanted to come back later that day, but had no time left to stop back by. ARRRGGGGG!!!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    Well I hear Lowes and Home Depot are going to double their garden centers and carry more specialty and designer plants (I can only hope this means cps). I commonly see Neps in hanging baskets at Lowes. But you seriously have to be there the day they come in. They are gone usually within 2 days. Sometimes they post a sign that says "Tropical Pitchers Plants (Nepenthes) have been reordered. Expected arrival date is..."
    Usually we have just VFTs though some times others.

    At Lowe's, I have seen:

    D. californica

    D. muscipula

    D. adelae
    D. spatulata 'Kansai'

    P. primuliflora

    S. purpurea ssp. venosa
    S. rubra ssp. rubra
    S. x 'Judith Hindle'

    They come in little, clear plastic cubes. They are usually packaged singly, but the upright Sarrs come in larger cubes, packaged with a D. adelae and a VFT.

    I've not seen them carry any Neps here, but I haven't asked yet, either. Given that the only Neps I have are N. x coccinea and N. x miranda, they would probably have something I don't have.
