Welcome to the forum! You will find lots of great information here. If you haven't already, read the care guide at Taking care of a flytrap boils down to 3 basic things: full sunlight, nutrient poor media (sphagnum or peat moss), and mineral free water. If you can provide all three then you will have good luck growing them.
