I have lloked at buying a venus fly trap and it is important to check the buyers info as some cheap ones tend to be poor. read up on the plant before you buy one as strangely there are different qualities of seeds...I am not aware of any other carnivorous plants so iuf you know any please let me know.

Carniverous plants are easy to grow, try butterworth, Sundews, Pitcher plants and venus fly traps. Do not water with tap water the flouride will kill them. Venus fly traps should be easy to source try one of the flower shops as the are available from Holland at the moment. If you google them there are loads of suppliers.
