    Full sun is good.
    Never let the soil dry out. EVER.
    Use Distilled water or Rainwater. Tap water usually contains too many dissolved minerals, which wil accumulate in the soil and kill you plants.
    Most CPs need a certain degree of humidity. If you grow them outside, they'll get all the light and humidity they need. Indoors, you may have to mist them (Esp: Drosera and Pinguicula).
    NO HAMBURGER OR OTHER PEOPLE FOOD! Don't feed your plants people food. Put them outside and they'll take care of themselves.
    VFT traps can only open and close 3-4 times before they stop working for good. Tease sparingly.

    It would help us out if you could tell us what region you live in, so we can give you further advice about outdoor growing, or if you plan to gorw plants inside. Good luck! I've been CPing for about a year and it's really fun. Plus you get to meet a buttload of cool people!

    WELCOME TO THE FORUMS! I hope you enjoy it here.


    As for other plants you would probably have luck with Sarracenia and the Nepenthes they stock here are rather easy.

    actually, you'd be quite surprised at the generosity of some of our members. I'm sure you could convince someone to part with some pygmy sundew gemmae or some D. Capensis, which grow like weeds. For some good deals (maybe), check the Auction going on for the national sarracenia conservency (last forum under general discussions). Many good plants and more for sale, and you help a good cause!
