    A sure fire way to get 100% germination of any seed, is to spill it into a pot of other CPs. They really take off if it is in a pot of CPs that have different cultivation requirements

    How come chicken fingers are bigger than buffalo wings?

    Thanks Scotty. I already have Savage Garden on my Amazon wish list (I'll also probably get Growing Carnivorous Plants at some point later) I wasn't planning on doing anything until I knew enough to be able to take care of a VFT properly, which I currently don't.

    Edit: Scratch that amazon wish list comment, Scotty, I just ordered it.

    i got my first VFT from my mother at random
    my first that started the collection anyway
    i didnt know anything about them but i somehow got by on instinct and a little reading
    they arent hard to take care of as long as you dont feed em hamburger or any other raw meat or processed meat, only live insects like flys or even spiders work.
    and of course you know the strict NO TAP WATER rule
    if you know to keep the soil moist, full sun, and allow it to go dormant in late fall
    youll be fine with your VFT.

    Hence the many capensis in various pots... not to mention the subulata!
