    Hello everyone! My name is Karie and im from the USA, born in FL and now live in Colorado. and i have 0 confidence in growing carnivorous plants! I know funny to be joining a carnivorous plant group when carnivorous is the only one ive never had luck with. But thats actually why im here! Im really hoping that everyone here will have the insight i need to get these beautiful plants to like me. Lol

    Welcome! Please ask any and all questions you may have about growing carnivores. A lot of them are quite easy to grow if you follow some very basic rules so let us know what you're interested in growing and we'll give you some help :)

    None at the moment. My last venus flytrap just died on me and honesly besides him not getting any flys i cant think as to why it hated me. Hopfully i can learn what im doing wrong and be able to have lots of pretty carnivorous like y'all.

    I've ALLWAYS! Loved the venus', nepenthes, and sarracenia. Only ever tried venus because those i can buy at my HD for cheap. They always die with in a month. This last one looked fine for at least 3 weeks thought "oh this one must like me", only gently watered when soil was dry but then some heads dried up so i figured it needed more water, BIG mistake it got root rot in like a day! I have so~ many questions. But im gonna start a whole new post for them tomorrow so i can have my questions and answers in order and not get confused (something that is far to easy with me)

    Now i know its basically that but with plants! And the whole process looks cool but just has way to much care to it for me to manage lol. And i got a lot of info on how to grow the seeds. Would have never known nepenthe seeds have to be so fresh. But ya i haven't even asked anything and already thing's are getting answered where as i couldnt find any helpfull info before.
