    Hi there and welcome to the forums.

    To tell the truth, the Fly Trap is actually a little bit tricky for a first time grower because of various factors (light, dormancy, amount of water, etc).

    I suggest you start with an easier carnivorous plant that is more forgiving. I suggest a Mexican butterwort or a Nepenthes Ventricosa (Tropical Pitcher Plant). Just put those plants on a partially sunny windowsill, give it some distilled water and make sure the soil is moist, and it's grow nicely for you.

    I suggest d. capensis, LOL! Mexi butterworts and neps are less hardy.

    Welcome to TF!

    I'm attending Texas A&M at the moment. I need to get rid of a lot of stuff so let me know if you're in the area.
