I have some pitchers I got local from Clearwater. One I got a Busch Gardens a year ago and the other I got from a store a few months ago. I have split both those little 6" pots into 7 total pots, two 6", four 10" and one 12" total. They're doing great. I cannot seem to find any good stores around here that carry them. Besides Busch Gardens, the little store I went to has just the same species every time and only 2 pots at a time. Not very extensive. I would love to try another species!

This weekend, the USF botanical gardens is holding a plant festival and there will be multiple carnivorous plant vendors :)


Damn too bad I just went back to NC yesterday or I would have gone to it.

No worries, unfortunately the usual carnivorous plant vendor didn't go, someone had Nepenthes ventrata and someone else had Sarracenia flava and Sarracenia Judith Hindle[/quote]

Still would of been cool to visit.

Was definitely nice if you didn't mind the missing carnivores

I went today and while it was great I was sad to see so few carnivorous plants! I did get a pot of Sarracenia but I am not sure which of the two earlier mentioned species I got.....any help? I have never had these before and I am excited to see how they grow in my care. Anyone know if I can split them as easily as nepenthes? Anyone know also if the Carnivorous vendor will be there tomorrow or if they're not in it at all this weekend? I'd make the trek again tomorrow if they're going to be there for sure. Traveling from Clearwater so I wouldnt go unless I knew for sure.

Vary nice specimen Michelle, I can't help you on any advice with sarracenia because I don't grow any. But someday when I make room and expand I'll pick some up.

That's Sarracenia flava, Sarracenia can generally be split very easily. I was told that the usual carnivorous plant vendor may be in Puerto Rico right now, so I don't think they'll be there tomorrow
