2016 is the first year I have been able to do any gardening. I live in southwestern Ohio, USA. I love roses, orchids, toad lilies...everything 😁

Found this little guy at the nursery yesterday. I never had much luck with the fly traps. But I have a pitcher plant that is doing good for a couple years. Thought I would try this guy.

I didnt know certain plants needed rainwater? Is that common in carnivorous plants?

@cheyenne1barnett Yes. Rain water or distilled water. Do not use your tap water. It will kill them.

Do you have to feed them if you keep them indoors? I mean feed then insects.

@teju I have read you do not feed them. They will catch enough bugs to survive. I get enough bugs from the plants inside. He has already caught some. Bug control inside is one reason I got him. I have never feed my pitcher plant. I have had it for a couple years.
