Good quality carnivorous plants can be tricky to find. A good grower is the first thing to look for when purchasing plants online. Unfortunately it can take a bit of trial and error when finding a reputable nursery. Each have their own species they specialize in, and depending on the shippers location, the plant might be adjusted to that locations environment.
