heyo guys, ill get straight to it
its gonna be my birthday soon and I am planning to make flytraps more than a hobby. having alot of free time I can devote myself to my traps. I got 50 bucks as a birthday gift and I want to increase my diversity for flytraps, the only plants right now i am confident with. perhaps there is a store that sells random cultivars for bulk or maybe a fellow forum member that has a surplus of plants they would take money for? Im thinking of something like a mystery box

but alas it is out of stock. if there is a seller that might be interested in something like this please help me out. I like to update my plants I receive so thats something to look forward to as well :D

I want to order from FTC also but almost nothing is in stock.

I had to order from Joel's carnivorous plants on Amazon and I don't regret it at all. I didn't have any other choice but he does have some beautiful plants for an amazing price. Can't go wrong.

I want to order my next plants from FTC, so I'm waiting patiently.

i kept checking the mystery box compulsively until one finally popped up and i could not recommended it more. i still check often for another one. don't rely on the email that it's in stock. it seems like they never have certain items, but they do come up. they just sell out quickly. good luck!

its out of stock for a reason, would be quite the nice surprise if made the exception though :lol:
i'm completely fine with small plants and I have only typicals so the mystery box would be perfect. flytrapcare is the only place that does it so ill get lucky if I find someone willing to do it haha

Try drosera. They're super duper easy and capensis is considered a weed in some collections (although not mine :( ) and they grow year round without dormancy. If you want something that can grow beside the vfts, try sarracenia, and temperate drosera (filliformis, intermedia temperate form, etc.)

what was in the mystery box?
alien(!), freaky star, pinnacle, vitiligo, green wizard, and some lovely unnamed large sarracenia. i got a few each of most of the flytraps. should add this was a premium mystery box. alien alone made it worth the price.

worst thing Matt and Leah could do is say no *shrug*

I sent you a couple links for places I've eyeballed in the past, have you looked into doing tissue culture stuff to increase plants?
