We got our first carnivore about a month ago and it's going strong so far. A purple pitcher plant - Sarracenia Purpurea. Actually, I shouldn't say first... many years ago I tried a couple of Venus flytraps but each one died right away.

This little guy however has grown a new pitcher twice the size of the ones it had when we brought it home. Have been doing care research, and having a great time. Now I think it's turning into one of those new obsessions - I want more!

Anyone else out there growing carnivorous plants? Love to see pics and hear any tips and stories!
