Is Crazy Craig's Carivorous Plants a good place to buy CPs from?

It is okay. Some of his named plants are dubious as to whether they should be classified as cultivars. Also he is notorious for selling plants right out of tissue culture instead of hardening them off.

I believe panman meant hardening (not gardening).

What do you mean by fine? I'm pretty sure the plants on ebay and on his website are all the same. Most of his reviews are positive.

You will get what you order. If you don't you will get a refund. Just don't expect to be floored by the quality of the plants. The results I've heard around here are meh at best.

If you are getting it from Flytrapstore, then you are good. I have a couple of CCCP plants that I got from other sources and they are decent plants. I really like the CCCP Razor Blades that I have. I also have CCCP Pinky Fingers, which I can't see anything special about. I also have a CCCP Unknown that is yellower than most but not completely yellow. He does have some neat looking plants.

Heres my buying experience:

clear round cups = seedlings, actual seedlings extremely small
2.5" black pots = starter plant, still depending on size it may be seedling as well

Also i hate that he puts a filter over the photos...
