I found some sundews at a local nursery this year, and while each was a bit pricey at $11-12, I bought them because it was the first time that I had seen sundews on sale nearby.
The bonus is that each little pot had 2-5 smaller sundews growing in the pot also, so I used that the justify the cost.
I look at VFTs the same way. Even if it's a cultivar I have already, if I find a pot with several clearly identified plants, I still may purchase it. It's just too tempting for about $5.
