Taking care of a carnivorous plant

I have some carnivorous plants belonging to the genera Dionaea, Sarracenia e Drosera. I wish I had some information so I could grow it as best I could.

P.S. One of the Dionaea is blooming

There are quite a few forums and facebook groups as well as a Discord server dedicated to carnivorous plants that you can find a lot of experienced growers on.

However here are some care guides I’ve come across that should be helpful:

flytrap care forums are a very good place to find information…and they have a seed bank that you can order seeds from for free except the price of postage.


The folks over at the r/SavageGarden subreddit will assist you, too.

Having kept sundews, I find it best to keep them permanently in a basin of water. I think the same applies for Venus fly traps, but I am less sure.
