I am new to the forum and to cps as well. Lots of good reading here and the chatbox is awesome.
I definitely don't have a green thumb and am not successful at gardening, but always wanted to try a VFT. This summer I found one almost dead D. adelae at Home Depot. Spent several days online learning how to care for it. Now I have a total of about 30 plants. Many sundews, many VFTs, a nep, 2 pings and a sarr. I seem to do well with carnivorous things.
