New to Carnivorous Plants
So my tanks are filled with plants and fish. No room for anything else there, but I've always loved venus fly traps. I want to get into carnivorous plants now.
I have been reading a lot on here and other sites for the passed week. I actually live in the same area where VFT grow native, so I feel pretty confident in my ability to grow them outside. My first question is could I overwinter them outside? We get maybe one snow here a season with a couple of frosts. Could I just stick them in the garage when the frosts come?
I would also like to try some Sarracenia pitcher plants. I have a koi pond and was wondering if I could grow them as bog plants with just wet roots in my koi pond? That pond is rainwater fed. If they won't do well in the pond, that's fine; I'll put them in full sun on my back porch. Which ones would be good for a beginner? And could I overwinter those outside, too?
I'd also like something I can keep inside in a terrarium during the winter. What plants would you suggest? I like the look of the Nepenthes but I keep hearing how some get huge.
Thanks for the help! I'm eager to get some of these amazing plants!
