Most of the canivorous plant suppliers seem to from north of of the Mason-Dixon line, the Northeast and Northwest, arid Western States or California.

I thought that plants from Southeast Texas, Southern areas of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or western Florida would be acclimated to the weather and conditions where I live.

Help with this information and your recommendations will be appreciated.

Grow forth and multiply,

To be honest, Venus flytraps and other CPs acclimated to growing in southern Oregon and California, with the very hot and dry weather, would be sufficiently acclimated to do well in almost any climate. They'd certainly be ready for some of that southern humidity! But could do well in lower humidity climates whereas other growers in the south couldn't say the same for their plants.

I got 25baby typical and a alien from Matt's store in OR shipped all the way to me in S.Carolina mid summer and they did not skip a beat. some of the baby's are like 5in+ already.

honestly i would be more concerned about shipping delays USPS is having some issues this year.

Agreed. The shipping delays are more worrying that the location where the plants are sourced. Let's hope USPS can get their problems worked out. They've definitely negatively impacted a lot of small businesses this year.
