pitcherplant.org has some good stuff, many members have purchased from them. Plus, if you're lucky, you may find hitchhikers. One member found (I think) 14 Sarracenia seedings in his order.

they seem to have a lot of great items in store, but unfortunately they are located outside of the EU. Since last year my country has this new rule that all packages from outside of the EU have to go through customs, which takes an additional 1-2 weeks and costs an extra administration fee +21% taxes.

so im really looking for a store located in the EU.

Just an FYI - It's a good idea to include this information in your original post, so people don't waste their time or yours with options that you can't use.

and depending on the season (light intensity i suppose) the colors also change. ive got a species that green year round, but also one that goes from green to brown/orange during winter.
