Some of it was ok. I also laughed at the "rich potting soil" as well as "fertilizing once a month." It's also bothersome that they advertise that it's a high humidity plant that does well in a terrarium. Oh well, we can only hope that people come across this website before that one!

Oh man, many people who read the instructions for Venus Flytraps there at are going to kill their plants. I can't stand that. So I wrote to them. I said that their comments and instructions for the Venus Flytrap are misleading, incomplete and sometimes erroneous, and suggested that they read the articles at the FlytrapCare main site, :)

Hah, that's an entertaining read...until, like Steve, I thought about all of the flytraps that could potentially die when people read those instructions!

I'm glad that Steve contacted them. Perhaps it will be enough of a nudge to get them to change the instructions.
