Another plant that I spied at the carnivorous nursery here in CA...and also not a plant I have space and growing conditions for. I think these types of plants would require an entirely different setup at the house that I don't think I can get into. But it doesn't mean I can't visit them once in awhile and hold my breath looking at them... Smiling

Of course they can be shipped. They will experiment a little setback, nothing serious. I ship n get plants from germany, france, poland etc. all the time. Everything is always fine. If you order from california carnivores, you will be pleased with your new lil guys :)

@maiden, i'll study your recommendations on how to keep them and if it'll be possible for me, as i travel a lot and i'll need to determine if they can be left alone in the closed terrarium for extended periods of time. eventually, i'll probably travel less, though. so, if not now, at least it has a deep potential for the future ;).
