So recently I went on a trip to Switzerland, (I don't live in Europe ), and stayed in zurich. I went to the botanicle gardens and they had carnivorous bromeliads, flowering Heliamphora, cephalotus, and even a corkscrew plant!( genlisea?), I went inside the green house and they had more heliamphoras and a couple of flytraps, and Mexican butterworts and sarracenia. After I saw this, the US's carnivorous plant botanicle gardens seemed kind of sad..... Like at the balboa gardens, they had ONE freakin' sarracenia. And it was half dead!
Sorry for all this long text. :?

I recently visited the Oregon Garden, which I believe is the largest botanical garden in Oregon. They had a very small bog with 6 or so very spindly Sarracenia outdoors, and a terrarium full of Sarracenia and flytraps inside the tropical greenhouse of all places. All of those plants surprisingly looked much healthier. They didn't even have a single Darlingtonia, which we have a state park dedicated to.
