    Keep it simple. Give it lots of light, and use distilled water.

    New growers often over-manage their plants, repotting, changing conditions, etc. These plants aren't that hard to grow, and often the best thing is to set up the best conditions you can, and leave it alone!

    What kind of plant did you get?

    Hi Kyle -

    Congratulations. Here's a tip - my best looking Sarracenia grow in 100% Long Fibered Sphagnum moss, in gallon sized and half gallon sized pots.

    Tip 2: Keep away from cats. My cat loves to chomp my sars every opportunity he gets. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img]

    Tip 3: Keep the squirrels away! They tear up my sarracenia pots something awful.

    Let us know what you have. If you're not sure, take a photo and post it in the "Name that Plant" forum for an I.D.

    Tip 4: keep it away from deer. They eat everything you don't want them to eat, and don't eat what you want them to eat. Same for racoons.
