As much as I love CC, I do admit opening a $75 plant on the messy side like that would definitely not go unnoticed. Maybe they figure you'll repot, so it'll get a whole lot messier haha idk I try to be optimistic.

Only my capensis and Darlingtonia are worthy of live sphagnum:

A reasonable expectation, I'd say. My fav thing about CC, others may disagree, is how almost all my plants I ordered from them were trojan horses of other cp's. I got nine binatas with my Florida Giant! Ordered one d. multifida extrema, got seven of em, plus an Alba cape sundew. And of course, the ubiquitous, and always welcome bladderworts. It's great!

Funny, because as someone who wants to increase their number of plants, I've purchased from CC hoping to get some hitchhikers. Ironically, I've bought 3..? plants from them, yet none have come with extras. I think their shipping costs would be justified only if their plants came with small extras, even if they're typical sundews/utrics.
Additionally, I thought the shipping cost was fine because their plants came potted and ready to go, but that was only because I didn't have soil to make my own mixes. Now that I do, I only get plants from them hoping to get extras. If other vendors gave the occasional extras, even if small, bare-root, I think I'd opt for getting plants from them instead

Just buy from sarracenia northwest in all honesty. They sell quality plants but their pretty expensive on everything. I like buying on eBay as well sometimes.

But do they often come with extras? I don't have a lot of plants yet, and I'm still looking for fairly common/cheap ones. I'm not willing to spend 30 bucks bucks on plants, yet.

If extras meaning Drosera capensis ad a weed or extras as a clump of the plant your buying, go for sarracenianorthwest for the same plant if you weedy pots go for California carnivores. I love getting sundews from them and flytraps but I don’t like the nepenthes they offer. Their sarracenia are good but seem small for the price.
