    They're not always in bad condition. Just depends how soon you visit Home Depot ot Lowes, following their shipment. The ones I bought 3 years ago looked great and then looked even better after a couple months of growth. After dormancy, though, their redmess was replaced by pink.

    Granted, the S. purpurea was the featured plant in the picture, but the plant in the purple pipette container is a VFT, after a dormancy, ~10 months after purchase from Home Depot. The pitcher plant came from Lowes.

    The one's I got from a local garden center (little shop of horrors plants) were in really good shape and are doing great right now like this one:



    This one is a Lowes buy, now in it's own 8 inch pot:

    Here are a couple of VFTs that I just bought at my local Orchard Supply Hardware (click to open larger 140kb images):



    Both were in good shape, and seem to be doing well so far.
