Let me preface this post by saying that, yes, I KNOW I can just start calling local plant nurseries -- but I'd rather not have to do so.

That said, does anyone know where (in the general L.A. area) I can purchase a Venus Fly Trap plant? The students in my Science class have never seen one and are fascinated by the idea -- and I'd love to be able to show them one in action.

Thanks!

I saw one at a Farmer's Market in Century City. If you just want your kids to see one, you can also try the Botanical gardens.

Out of curiosity, why you are opposed to calling nurseries?

I got one for my son last year, for his science project, at Target.

It's not that I'm opposed to it, but I don't have access to a phone during the day while I'm teaching, so I'd have to do it after hours or on the weekend, and I just don't want to spend my spare time trying to hunt down one silly plant ...

Sometimes the 99cent store has some sickly looking ones.
