Hello all!
New member here looking to get a good start into this hobby. I am currently looking for anything really seeds, plants, cuttings etc. I have one VFT now but i want to expand. I still have alot of things to learn, the whole TC thing looks amazing and cant want to dive into it. I have a background with cultivating mushrooms so agar work is nothing new to me. Anyways im rambling on here, i am willing to pay for items though i would like to keep it under 30-40$ range.
Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Greetings. What part of the country are in? FYI - It might not be the best time of year to ship certain type of plants, but there should still be plenty of options.

Anyway, drosera, nepenthes, and pings are pretty popular around here and you shouldn't have a problem finding members who can hook you up. But if you're interested the king of all CPs (Sarracenia, of course), feel free to PM me.

Hey there. I’m new to the forums but not to the hobby.

When things warm up a bit I have a ton of Drosera capensis seedlings that I can send your way.

Just let me know. Too cold to ship now though.

Lowe's often has Venus flytraps, and they occasionally-to-rarely sell Nepenthes. Worth a look!

Hey! I live in NE PA. I bought my original vfts from Lowe's. They're in like that hanging garden area, not in the main gardening area. They're pretty weathered too. They're not the prettiest, but definitely not bad at all. I also bought one of their pitcher plant kits and my plant is finally producing cups. Yay. Definitely check out some local stores to see what they have. There's also the seed bank here. I'm sure in spring you'll get a lot of hits for cuttings. I'd offer you some of mine, but I'm not sure I'd cut it right so you could transplant it. I may be able to divisions though. If I can figure out how to ship them without then getting crushed.
