    Thanks for the replies, everyone. I think I'm going to proceed with a minibog planter with N.A. sundews, VFT, and Sars this spring. Hopefully I'll be able to overwinter them in my garage or basement if they survive their first growing season under my care . Once I get things set up in late April, I'll post some pics here.

    I find it particularly amusing that you already have a hobby and find this one interesting, I think cp's are cooler.
    nepenthes ventricosa is a good nepenthes to start with and so is N. sanguinea andy sales that
    and drosera capensis is harder to kill than grow Andy sells that also.
    sarracenia catesbei is a great and beautiful sarracenia andy sells that too.
    they like clean water RO or distilled rainwater will also work and a 50/50 mix of peat moss and perlite works for about 80% of all carnivorous plants.
    fertilizer will burn cp's roots its a slow and painful death so don't fertilize.
    some peopla may quote me and say i fertilize all my plants but heck don't use just any fertilizer.
    fertilizing can be done but its unnecessary the plants will grow fine without it.
    you most commonly hear of people fertilizing nepenthes.

    I actually have a couple of degrees in biology, so it is always easy for me to get hooked on a new pastime involving plants or animals .

    Thanks again everyone for all the welcomes and tips. Hopefully I'll have a grasp on things before it's time to plant in a couple of months.

    While some CPers do fertilize their carnivorous plants, it's not something that is recommended for a beginner to try until they have some experience growing CPs as well as a couple extra plants to experiment on that they won't mind losing if they screw up.

    I got a whole thing of miracle gro but I don't think I'd ever use it on my CPs. Maybe if it's almost completely brown? Like I got some tiny tokaeinsis. Wonder if it'd help them since they are gonig brown. Probably melt their roots lol
