    if your VFT doesnt live, just get another when you know you can grow it.
    andy here has a nice little selection of VFTs that he can happily sell you.
    http://flytrapshop.com
    he always sends healthy plants, so hes a good seller.
    When I get live traps that is where I will get them from for sure. I have seeds on order now. I used to by from ***** Seed, but have switched to ****com for my love of strange plants. I will be investing in some better lighting for the CP's for sure. At my office where I start Non CP's I actually have a couple of Mini greenhouses and shop light type setups. I have also started making Micro terrariums and will post some pictures when I get a sprout or two. Thanks again!

    ooooh watch the adverts ;\ andy doesnt like it when people mention suppliers, so edit that out mate.
    as far as seeds
    eek
    germination is a pain
    and it takes years for them to mature.

    I have 2 seeds that came with a kit stratifying right now. We'll see what happens with them. I was going to go with a 50/50 of peat moss and perlite. Will that work?

    No, its one of those mini impulse buys from a bookstore, it came with a book, the seeds, a peat disc, non bleached silica sand, a pot and a plastic bag to put it in for humidity. It is called Grown Your Own Venus Flytrap. Nifty little package.

    good luck with that though, like i said
    slow maturity.
    1 year seedlings are only about the size of a dime or a little larger
    not too impressive.
    3 years will be about average size and it should be mature by then
