Just found this board when I was looking for resources on Venus Flytraps. I've been keeping them (one at a time) for the last 5 years. The longest survivor was a year and a half. My pitcher plant has been more successful, it's been with me 4 years. I'd love to get into sundews, but I almost never see them for sale in the local plant stores. I've acquired two in the last 5 years and both died. Internet research did not help clarify what the cause of death had been.
Glad to see this club exists. Looking forward to learning more. And hopefully to killing fewer plants!
There are very few people who haven't killed a plant whilst starting on this hobby, stick with it and read the forums and pretty soon you will get it nailed down. They arent at all tricky once you know what they need.

I started growing carnivorous plants by killing a VFT as well and now I have so many I had to buy a shelf and set up a grow area to keep them in! If your ever in the orillia area I can supply you with some D. spatulata and a couple other easy varieties to get you started.

bonfield: I've decided to finally reveal my best-kept secret for growing healthy Neps: Just spit on them every few days, the enzymes in saliva help them to better absorb the fertilizer I spray them with!

chrisrichard: SCAM ALERT--Don't buy from Pearl River Exotics in Georgia. What they advertise on their website IS NOT WHAT U GET!!! I've learned from my horrible experience+am sharing with everyone, so you don't get ensnared in the same trap of false advertising by them.
