I had to make a trip to Dothan, AL today...stopped by Home Depot and found some traps and some "two-fers" (pitcher plant and flytrap combo). They had them against a wall, in a corner behind a broom and dustpan (ones that they use) and a box of "something". There was nothing in the "two-fers" boxes but packs of peat moss and dried husks of rhizomes or whatever. The traps, well a few of them, actually had some green to them. The two flats were soggy, probably somebody turned a water hose on them to help them out.

Next I stopped at Wallyworld in Troy, AL. To my big surprise they actually had some fair (relative speaking) flytraps there. I mean, nothing B52-looking, but they actually had open traps on them and some of them were even upright!!! I exerted extreme self-control and left without any. :D

Not necessarily. I've seen them before at a local nursery, but I'm not sure which if any other major chains carry them instead of the cubes.
