GardenWeb has a forum just for carnivorous plants like the Venus Fly Trap (VFT), pitcher plants, and others. There's lots of information already there, and you can ask the real experts.

Years ago I grew some VFT and they always died, or so I thought. But reading the Carnivorous Plant Forum I just learned the other day that they have a long dormancy period when they turn brown and look dead. Maybe mine were still alive?

Here is a link that might be useful: Carnivorous Plant Forum
