Just an update..
I did receive shipping notification from USPS for the tubes last Monday. I was really expecting them to be here yesterday after the holiday.. but still nothing as of today. ANY DAY NOW!! The day they arrive, is the day your plants will be shipped. Trust me, I want you to get them just as badly as you do. And no worries, ALL of the plants look as good as the day I got them. They are all quite happy in my HL conditions. Some are even putting up new growth!! I did keep one due to "losing a challenge".. but I kept the least flattering one. I wanted everyone else to get the cream of the crop, so to speak.

I got ONE of them today. Hope the other one is okay over the weekend. :<
Silly USPS, separating my packages.
Mine's a little beat up, looks like one of the traps had a good thwack against the plastic and cracked a little, but looks healthy other than that!

Hi there! I just wanted to let you know that my plant has arrived safe and sound. Let's hope it does well... Generally all it takes is one hot day to do them in but I'll be keeping it inside my greenhouse and hopefully it'll fare better than my previous attempts at Darlingtonia. Thanks again! :)

Mine are both here and happy so far, plus, my local nursery (which I also applied to work at today) had smaller cobras for super cheap, so I picked up a baby one. :)
At this rate, I think I might start a kind of Southern Oregon outside setup for my cobras!

eou....give it some more time, it can take plants weeks sometimes to get acclimated to diferent growing conditions.

I know I'm a little late, but are there any left? I'd absolutely love to get my hands on one of these!

Edit- Ahh, never mind.. I just read the page that said they were out. Sorry about that and thanks anywho.
