Couple questions. Why does FTS not sell Drosera? Next, Is this just a bad time of the year or what? It seems that whenever I go and look at the store most of what draws my interest are out of stock. I would think with the Holidays approaching that there would be more offerings. I want to send family links to what to get me but about 98% of what I am wanting are out of stock, which means I have to go elsewhere and I would really like to start buying from FTS.

He actually has quite a lot of inventory (I've seen it, it's impressive), moreso now that he has the greenhouse, but most of his stuff is needed as brood stock. Plus, it's getting into a time that the plants are getting ready to sleep, so shipping stress might hit them kinda hard now. If he waits until they're dormant, then it's typically too cold to ship them. Missouri can be brutal, and his local post office is lacking. Matt chose to primarily use a post office in the next city as they had better customer service. If he waits until spring, then he knows the plant isn't a dud, and it has all season to settle in at its new home.
He doesn't do dews because he loves flytraps and Sarrs much more. There's just no room in his heart for dews.
