Where do you buy other carnivorous plants?

by lemonlily » Tue Dec 09, 2008 2:41 am

I want some other things like maybe a Sundew or stuff like that. But all I have is one plant of a Venus Fly Trap.

Lily,

Several of us put together a blog
http://www.flytrapcare.com/carnivorous- ... sites.html
containing ratings for several nursery websites. For Dionaea I would recommend http://www.a store.com and for other plants http://www.connerscarnivores.com.
Be very careful ordering this time of year as most plants are going through dormancy.
I hope this help!

You'd have to look them up on the internet or in the phone book and find one close to you and call them during their normal business hours and ask them if they carry carnivorous plants.

Lily,

Just a shot in the dark but you could try the .99 store. That is where I bought my typicals back in March.

Call them to see if they have any in stock and if they do, have your parents drive you.

Here in Malaysia, our local nurseries are terrible. All you can find are nepenthes, which are usually in terrible condition. There is a nursery where I bought my first typical VFT and it uses fertilizer for all the CPs there....... :x So don't fret. In your country, it is much more easier to find other carnivorous plants than in Malaysia, unless you are looking for nepenthes......

Cheers

Sorry,

I forgot you were up north. .99 stores are mainly in the western USA. You should try what Matt said and look up nurseries on the internet or in the phone book and find one close to you and call them during their normal business hours and ask them if they carry carnivorous plants. Just be careful as most carnivorous plants are in dormancy now.

Sometimes they will sell them at the florist stores
