For information there are two books that i highly recommend: Carnivorous Plants of the world and The Savage Garden

For plants: (Cook's Carnivores)
Pros: Very affordable prices, wide selection of species.
Cons: Slightly lower quality, but well worth the lower price! You can find their sales on ebay, as well. Seeds are occasionally sold here, as well.
Pros: Mature, well-established plants that arrive in great shape after shipment.
Cons: Quite expensive, but if you have enough money, go for it! :)
Pros: Among the best selection of rare plants!
Cons: Among the highest prices on the net. Often out of stock (Meadowiew)
Pros: Excellent prices for common species
Cons: Limited selection is available, rarer species may be unaffordable. =(

www. (Sarracenia Northwest)
Pros: Decent selection established and mature plants
Cons: Relatively expensive
Pros: Quite a nice variety of mature plants at reasonable prices
Cons: Out of stock of rarer varieties most of the year, and moderately expensive for the rarer varieties

Pros: Very reasonable prices when in stock
Cons: Extremely small selection of plants
Pros: Decent variety
Cons: Some of the varieties can be quite expensive or are out of stock
Pros: Drosera!!!!! large selection of plants and very reasonable price
Cons: inventory are usually out of stock
Pros: Occasionally you can find rarer species offered, from reliable vendors. I bought most of my plant from here
Cons: It is hard to know exactly how reliable the sellers are. Be sure to ask whether the pictures are of the actual plant being sold if there is any discrepancy, and it's always helpful to check that the plants weren't poached if you have any suspicions.
