Green house or outside

by Sleepy » Fri Nov 03, 2017 2:40 am

I'm new to carnivorous plants so was just wondering if my flytraps would do better in the green house or outdoors. I put them all in a big pot together hope in not killing them

It all depends on where you live.

That sundew looks like a capensis so they should not be growing together. And like Kat said, your location is sort of important to know. Also what kind of greenhouse is it? From the picture it looks like some green plastic...

I guess the recommendation not to be grown together is that Capensis, as its name suggests, is South African and doesn't need dormancy like VFTs. However capensis is almost indescribable and if it is left with the VFTs into a dormancy period with low temperatures, it will die back to the roots but will almost certainly come back from the roots next year.
Cheers
