I think if you've had experience with both sarracenia and dionaea, it won't be an issue! As long as you plant them in peat and perlite, or even just peat, give them lots of sun, and have them sitting in a tray of distilled water, rain water, or reverse osmosis water, everything is smooth sailing! Make sure the pot they are planted in has holes at the bottom. I would also recommend putting a bit of long fibered sphagnum moss at the bottom of the pot so the soil doesn't fall out, and there is more moisture being held. And don't forget that cp's can die from any fertilizer so watch out for stuff by miracle grow. Also,I love Judith Hindle. The prettiest looking sarracenia to me. And what website is that from?

Depending on where you live they could be the easiest carnivorous plants to grow, or they could be a little trickier to grow. If you live in zone 8 or 9 you could grow it outside all year. Otherwise you will have to do extra stuff for their winter dormancy.

Fridge dormancy would be a bit difficult for beginners in my opinion.

The Sarracenia purpurea should do just fine outside year round, it's their native zone. The other plants probably wouldn't mind that much either as long as they are protected from deep frost by covering them with some mulch (or snow), and even then there are people who manage to grow them in zone 5 without covering anything. If they survive, great! If they don't, you can always try again!

Yes it's their native habitat, but they don't grow in pots in the wild. So they might do well if left outside, but I wouldn't take the chance. Especially if you don't want to purchase more plants.
