You'll spend more, but the recovery time will be a matter of days as long as it's not still dormant.100% agree. It is best to get one in good health from a reputable grower who specializes in carnivorous plants and, preferably, Venus flytraps to maximize the chance of success of growing it!

No matter what, people should have the basic care requirements well understood before attempting to grow Venus flytraps. Thankfully they are very few and usually not too hard to meet.

Of course, I typically pay much more attention to my VFT collection than I do our veggies but the fact is that they're really not terribly hard at all to grow. I'm sure if I cared enough to read more about growing veggies well, I'd have similar success with them. But I love my VFTs far more than my veggie plants
