I am interested in carnivorous plants. I donít exactly own one yet. Can I still post if I dont own one but am planning to get one?
Im going to buy a cape sundew because i know there a good beginners plant, and will get one as soon as the weather permits. I have some house plants, but they dont grow too well because i overwater them! I know carnivorous plants will live in permanently moist soil. I know they need purified low sodium water. I have a mini- terrarium as well as a unused large one.
But i have some questions. Will a cape sundew (D capensis) grow in a 1ft by 1ft square terrarium, and will it be large enough? The closest petstore is a hour away, and I donít know if they have insects that i will be able to feed it during bug-less times (tough they keep lizards, so they probably do have something.
If not i might be able to get maggots at the local bait store [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] (eww)
Is D. slackii Good for beginners too? What plants would you recommend?
You may be wondering why my screen name is Finch. Thats because i love birds, and own a bustling colony of zebra finches that would double its population size in 6 months if i didnt remove the eggs [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
