I have been hunting the web, but so far haven't found what I want. What I would love to get is a small sampling I guess you could call it of carnivorous plants, with a red theme. By that I mean 1 each of a flytrap, a pitcher, and a sundew with the more red varieties of each. For me I would prefer a short dense version of each as much as possible too. Anyway, I was wondering if it's possible to get something like this from your site?

Plants don't come in samples, i'm not sure what you are inplying by "sample".

Matt has some Sarracenia heading to the store soon, but I'm not sure if any are red. Just browse the store and the other stores under the Carnivorous Plant Supplier thread and see what you like.

*facepalm* I dont mean bits of leaf or something LOL! I just mean as a set of three different types. Like as opposed to a bunch of flytraps or whatever? Bad word to use perhaps? I saw the eBay one but I don't really trust eBay for living things.

Look at the sellers ratings

some good ones I know are


flytrapstore
joelscarnivorousplants
sam1greentmb


mot of the other guys are legit.

actually I cant think of one guy who isn't

ebay is just like any store thats not on ebay. they still get shipped to you.

I would like to ask, why did you make a post instead of just ordering 3 red plants form any of the CP dealers?

Also Joel has a trio of the carnivorous plants you want. there is like 20+ available. the flytrap has green leaves but with the right lighting, temperature and ph(low) will get red traps.

What CP dealers? I wasn't aware any were listed here. If you mean elsewhere it's because I couldn't find what I was looking for. I've had some bad eBay experiences, thus my reluctance to go to them for anything living. Is this forum area not for posting about things I am interested in getting?

The link I provided is "Joel's Carnivorous Plants" who is a very reputable seller. You have no worries buying from him.

ebay is NOT a person.

buying plants from there is no different from buying plants from a place that's not on ebay. They get SHIPPED, they will all take time to get to you( (1-5 days)
