    These are actually a knock-off of the Lowe's death cube.

    A... knock off? Of a Deathcube?

    *Head Explodes*

    Edit: I do like how they actually list species names, though, that puts them higher up in my book.

    Nice find wurm

    as for deathcubes i find, you have to buy them as soon as they come in...at least the 'knock off" deathcubes have air holes so the air can circulate...ive also seen a few other knock offs when they sell vfts, there not that bad though, though they look like how i pack them to be shipped when potted lol, from the box to the shelves no time spent cleaning them up, removing domes etc...

    ive seen some really bad ones before like at lowes....were the death cubes live up to there name right at the store...i still sometimes see the cubes pushed behind all the new houseplants which were probably from 1-2yrs ago, the plants have completely died and there still for sale at original price of $5 for the small and $10 for the big, idk bout you but i dont think id spend my money on a cube full of waterlogged potting mix that has algae growing in it...though i have been able to find some good ones when they just come in, ill have to make another trip out there maybe pick up a few to rescue, i havn't actually looked for any cps at the stores lately but im hopeing they finaly decided to get those dead cubes off the shelves

    I dont know about "knock-off"..
    there are simply 2 or 3 different companys marketing CP's this way..
    I wouldnt say one is a "knockoff" of any other..

    and actuallly, that site: http://flytraphelp.info/
    is one of the best "death cube" sites I have seen!
    they actually give good info..including decent dormancy info!
    which is usually very lacking (or absent completely!)

    my only complaint is that they invented brand new, stupid names..
    "octupus plant" and "starfish plant"..lame..

    and..since it seems I am actually defending death cubes somewhat..
    the "death" part of "death cube" really belongs to the stores selling the plants..not the companys that are TC-ing them and putting them in the cubes..its bad/indifferent care at Walmart-Lowes-Home Depot-Target etc that cause plants to die..its not really the fault of the "manufacturer"..

    It's definitely a better one, but I still think it's rather misleading to say the plants need to be kept humid and in the terrarium. Eventually those sarracenia are going to outgrow the cube and you're going to wind up with confused growers trying to find a terrarium big enough for the whole plant.

    Knockoff means they weren't the first. I bought a few cases from those dudes a couple years back when they were packaging in little plastic bags with twist ties that said "carnivorous plants". Each bag included a giant plastic card with all the info from the website.

    An interesting side note, cobra nest was selected and registered by the same nursery in order to fit in his packaging and ship well.
