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.

Sometimes it takes a while for Nepenthes to acclimate to their new home.  Some Nepenthes I've purchased from other growers have taken up to a year to produce a set of new pitchers.  This is especially

Hi Rob,    In general, all flytrap handle the same temperatures since they are native to a zone 8 climate.  In zone 6, you will need to take special precautions on all plants, regardless of the variety

Hi Jason,    Acephate works quite well.  Following up with the Talstar is probably a good plan since that will help kill crawlers too, and has good surface residual activity.  Be sure to coat leaves well
