We have been growing thousands of Venus flytraps and carnivorous plants for many years and can help provide any sort of care guidance for Venus flytraps and many other carnivorous plants.

Christopher Littrell

I am capable of answering questions about the most common carnivorous plants found in cultivation. I have no personal experience with Byblis, Drosophyllum, Aldrovanda, and Heliamphora. I have not cultivated gemmae forming pygmy sundews nor tuberous sundews. For information regarding those aforementioned species, I would suggest contacting other experts. I can answer questions regarding most species of Nepenthes, tropical and temperate Drosera, Mexican Pinguicula, Sarracenias, and Dionaea. I have some limited experience with growing Utricularia, Cephalotus, and Darlingtonia.

Hi Major Scott,    Thank-you.  We really try to make them useful.  I'm sad to say that our little Max dog with the mohawk passed away a couple years ago from congestive heart failure. :(    I think you

Hi John,    Start at 12" away from the plant, then watch how it does.  If you are getting lots of dew, and the leaves are red, you've got it.  If they are staying green, then move closer.  With T-5 you
