Carnivorous Plants

The next time you see Venus flytraps in their little plastic containers
at the grocery store, consider taking one home. Information abounds on
the Web, encouraging you to try not only Venus flytraps, but also pitcher
plants, sundews, butterworts and various other aggressive vegetation.
Three sites are selected here for your perusal.  Barry Meyers-Rice's
pages contain many good photographs and FAQ (though the FAQ is a bit
wordy and split across multiple pages). Another, by Michael Zenner, has
sketches and a detailed cultivation guide. Matthias Schmidt offers photos
of 43 species (usually in their native habitats), but beware of the
frames.
