Sounds like you got a decent lowes in your Area. There is 2 Lowes in the local area and both of them had pitiful looking Venus Fly Traps. The one didn't even have any alive! I got 2 from lowes and 1 died and the other is still after a month pitiful looking.

I bought 2 VFTs from Lowes 2/24/01. They haven't been that bad. I have gotten 3 new plants from those original 2, with one ready to be divided again.

I will say, if you don't get them the week they come in, they will be near death the following week. For some reason, they don't water them. Same with Walmart, they just tossed 20 dead ones. I was going to save a few, but they were gone before I could get back.
