welcome to the forums joe!

congrats on your green dragons! they are one of my favorite venus fly traps! spend a little time reading the forums here as you'll learn tons about your vft's. you can also use the "search" button at the top of the page is you aren't finding the info you're looking for fast enough.

in my own experience, if you grow your vft's outside, they will eat plenty of food, and grow big and healty in no time. just remember to use good water (distilled, rain, or reverse osmosis), never let them dry out, give them lots of sunlight, and do not fertilize them as you may kill the plant.

welcome to one of the largest communities of carnivorous plant growers on the web!

peace,
