can I get plants?
To buy carnivorous
plants today is not difficult anymore. Beside nurseries specialized in
carnivorous plants, often they also can be found in garden centers. For
beginners this is not the worst source to make experiences with these
strange plants, because often the plants which are sold are cheap and
easy to cultivate. Unfortunately I have observed that employees
there are not so familiar with the cultivation of carnivorous plants,
so often the plants suffer a lot due to wrong treatment. If you like to
buy plants in common garden centers, be aware that the plants look
healthy and that they have a vivid colour.
To find more rare
species, you will have problems to get them in regular garden centers.
It will be necessary to contact commercial cp nurseries or private
growers, which perhaps sell plants too. More rare Pinguicula species
are quite difficult to find because they are not so loved by
carnivorous plant growers
due to its non-spectacular phenotype.
I sometimes sell plants
from my collection, so if you are looking for some species, just send
me an eMail
