Man, reading that answer would make one think that growing VFT's is nearly impossible. I wonder how many folks read that kind of stuff and decide they can't devote the time involved in re-creating the exact conditions of the Carolinas... This fellow has written a lot of books. He states elsewhere that if you don't live in the southeast US, your VFT will require a terrarium. Wow, no wonder there are so many confused folks on VFT's needing rescuing!
I suppose this post is just a GREAT BIG THANK YOU!! Between this forum, and Sarracenia Northwest's DVD series, I'm enjoying a very rewarding and very relaxing hobby. I've killed countless VFT's I bought in stores, or from Boy's Life magazine as a kid, and I was only following the instructions. Now, I'm getting great plants from FTS, FTR and SNW, along with great information, and even rescuing a Death Cube typical here and there. My plants are thriving, even without the high humidity of the Carolinas!! I like SNW's take on CP's, "If you can grow tomatoes, you can grow CP's".
I'm glad in my research, I came across this forum before I came across that FAQ!!
