Lee's Botanical Gardens at www.lbg-cp.com? They seem to have very good prices for bareroot plants. :)

You are right. For $850 you can get a 4 foot crocodile. Perfect companion for your Flytraps.

I've been talking to Bruce via email for the past few days and from what he says it seems that people would be quite happy with the plants. He is somewhat careful about when he ships to other states because he has the plants best interest in mind.

He also has several "Lots" if you wish to get a large number of random plants at a low price. 35 usd will net you 22 plants (average of ~1.60 per plant). 6 med VFTs, 6 Droseras, 4 Pings, 6 pitchers (probably Sarrs).

Notes:
His website is crude and difficult to navigate.
Most plants seem to be in stock (unlike other sites).
His selection of pitchers is huge.
The selection of other CPs is quite small.
All plants are shipped bare root.
Prices are great.

Nope. :( No confirmation of shipping email yet which I'm assuming he sends out. Only that the order was received and I got that the first day.

Well he said that it takes 3-7 days before he can ship during this time of the year. This is a hobby for him, he actually works at a nursery down the road.
