    Nice Find At The Local Nursery

    Normally the Armstrong Garden Center near my house has a CP selection limited to VFTs, cape sundews, and S. purp ssp. venosa. Every once in a while, though, they actually have something decent. I've found S. swaniana and S. flava there before. Today I stopped in and they had this little gem in the back of the rack:
    The Death Box
    Sarracenia Minor: The Hooded Pitcher Plant

    Complete with bad advice as usual...
    Bad Advice

    Even though I'm giving all my sarracenia to a foster grower this fall, I couldn't let the little guy die in that place.

    Sarracenia savior!

    That brand seems to carry decent looking Sarracenia. I found a flava in one of those boxes.

    He said that about the octopus (capensis) and starfish (ping). He did not qualify that comment for the sarracenia.
