places I have shopped:
Meadow biological research:
plants are generally large for what you pay for them
will work with you if there are problems with an order
can be slow to ship
packaging isn't the best
great place to go to get your first taste of cp's especially if you live on the east coast. But most of the drosera and VFT's are common so no need once you get yourself established; however I cannot comment on the sarracenia as of yet.
a carnivorous plant store Carnivorous plants
good to excellent prices
will work with you(replaced an anglica that refused to grow and died but will request photo evidence)
will treat you well if you do repeat business
things packaged good
communication can be spotty
shipping can be slow
Overall Opinion: give em a try....if you have a varied list of cp's to get best to get them at one place and save on shipping.
plants are quite healthy...outta the box my lowlanders were ready to grow...no acclimation, no fuss no muss.
good selection of nepenthes
mostly good prices
poor communication. some questions i posted never got answered.
prices can be a little high depending on what you order.
plants rcd were a little small.
Overall Opinion: if it wasn't for the worry free quality plants i got I probably wouldn't do business there again.
...best for last.
Lee's Botanical Gardens
very good communication. you can tell the guy has been in the cp business a while.
very healthy plants...they needed to acclimate some to my lights...little too bright but wasn't a problem at all..for the specimens I received
has LL crosses I have never even heard of much less compare to(ya know since everyone else is all about highlanders).
limited selection. not many other cp's to choose from other than nepenthes and if you aren't shopping for Lowlanders or lowland crosses; best to look elsewhere.
Overall Opinion: If you like Lowland nepenthes then why are you not on the website already?! If you do not like Lowland nepenthes then meh give it a look when you get the time.
