I don't think I've ever seen a nursery or flower shop that sells them before. Is this because they're impossible to grow in New York?

I've always wanted to grow one. They look cool. Either that or super mario has really affected the outcome of my interests nutz

At first, I thought there was a typo in the topic, & you meant to write "Where can I find a COP in NY?"!! laugh laugh

Which part of New York are you in?
I'm in Rockland County - if you are nearby, I can try and help you find one.

hahahah

Don't worry I'm not new to these online forum kind of things. I used to use them quite a lot for gaming in the past. Now I use them mainly for information and research.

Besides, this seems like a very positive and friendly community.

Recently I've been talking to a friend I used to have class with (but never hung out with). Apparently her father owns a hardware store a couple blocks from me that I've known for the past 10 years, and apparently they do have a couple venus flytraps there.

So yeah. Problem solved. Thanks :p

Not only can we positive & friendly, we have our share of fun here too... so stick around, & make yourself at home! [Linked Image]


So, where is your friend's father's hardware store at?
Anywhere in Lynne's neck of the jungle? [Linked Image]

(Do your friends call you "Super_Noob"? Can we call you that too, or do you have a name that doesn't require typing an under_score?) grinnnn

No credit card and I've never used a money order or anything like that. I still have a year to go before I can get a credit card (I'm 17 now :\) so I can't really order anything online. My parents are very paranoid about ordering things in general, because they feel like in doing so, they're forced into a committment, or that there's a catch to every purchase. They're also afraid of a computer (DON'T CLICK ON THAT OR WE HAVE TO PAY).

My mom also doesn't like some of the things I buy. If I buy it with her, she has to approve of it before I can buy it and take it home. But if I walk out there by myself and buy it, then come home with it, and after 3 months she realizes it's there, she won't care.

laugh laugh laugh laugh that stinks to have parents like that... my grandparents are just like it!

The buying online thing was just a thought... I'm only 14 myself so I can't order anything as well...it was just a suggestion!... laugh

Anyway, you can porbably get a CP at a walmart or target... Oh!!! IDEA!!! How about a local florist special orders one for you? (Just another idea... laugh )

I hope I didn't scare you when I asked where about you lived? Was just curiuos if you were anywhere around this part of NY, so I might suggest some nurseries.

I did see some VFT in Home Depot 2 days ago that looked pretty healthy - do you have one of those nearby?

Nah don't worry about it. I'm not reckless enough to post my full address on the internet. And even if I did, I doubt that it would pose any real problems for myself, other than several telemarketers sending mail and calls to my house.

To answer your question from earlier (I forgot you asked), Brooklyn, New York.

Well... I was BORN in Brooklyn and lived there until I was 2, and both my parents grew up there - in Bensonhurst! My grandmother lived there until she died in 1996, and I have a few cousins who grew up there too.

I'm so glad Mark will be able to suggest nurseries, etc!

A quick google search brought up this one - anywhere near you?

Midtown greenhouse Garden Center
115 Flatbush Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11217
(718) 636-0020

The location, yes, the area code, yes, but the nursery or w/e that is, no. Flatbush is about a 20 minute or half hour drive from where I live, but it can be a pretty bad neighborhood despite there being some pretty great things to do around there (zoo, botanical gardens, brooklyn college).

I've been there every now and then. The last time I went there was to go to a marine recruiting station.

Thanks for the address!

VFTs are fairly common in garden centers here in N.Y. However they DO need a dormant period in winter.

Mine are in the fridge as I don't have a unheated basement or garage.

Go here for all you need to know:

http://www.sarracenia.com/faq.html

There are several CP dealers on the web that are great, for indoor CPs chose a tropical Sundew or a nepenthes. VFTs are NOT indoor plants, neither are american pitcher plants, they MUST have a dormant period every year.

Happy reading!

Tom
