  • Indoors on a north-facing windowsill (4-6 hours direct sunlight)
    • We recommend:Β  A cobra lily, sun pitcher and/or an albany pitcher plant

You need to know that....

  • Some plants go dormant (die back to a winterbulb) during the winter months - these are called temperate plantsΒ  Temperate plants only grow actively during spring and summer - venus flytraps, temperate sundews, purple pitcher plants, trumpet pitcher plants, parrot pitcher plants, cobra lilies all fall into this category
  • Given enough light during wintertime, subtropical sundews, tropical pitcher plants and bladderworts will grow throughout the year.Β  Most bladderworts only flower during the warmer months

Got it! one quick question:Β 

  • Q: I'm an absolute beginner.Β  Would you recommend starting with an actual plant or seed?
  • A: In optimal conditions it takes around 4-6 weeks for carnivorous plant seed to germinate and in most cases it will be approximately 3-5 years to reach a size that you can brag about to your friends.Β  We'd recommend starting with a plant and then advance to growing them from seed once you are more comfortable with the growing conditions needed for each species
