Suggest Plants for a Newbie
Hey gang. I'm interested in beginning a small carnivorous plant terrarium. The max size I can fit in my small crowded apartment would probably be 10-15 gal. max in a south or southwest facing window. I would prefer species that are at least somewhat easy to find and care for as I start out. Is starting from seeds an option or should I order online. I'd rather not go to Wal-Mart, Home Depot, etc. as all the plants I've seen there are near death. Can anyone recommend a good online dealer? What are the weekly requirements? Do I need to catch flies to feed them and mist regularly? Can I put them in direct North Carolina sun in the summer? What type of substrate is best and can I mix my own? I'll stop there as that is plenty of fodder for the experts. Thanks for the help.
