My experience with carnivorous plants is with Venus Flytraps, Pitcher Plants, Nepenthes and a few Sundews. All of these require an acidic enviroment and very low nutrient soil. In nature they don't eat tons of food. Never ever stuff like hamburger etc...it will kill them, they rot.
I've seen flytraps, sundews and pitcher plants in their natural enviroments often in sandy soil, sphagnum moss or a few peat bogs...always moist and nearly always high sun light.
They can be fed diluted ferts, but in a riparian enviroment I think they would be very hard to cultivate.
