I am John Chen, I am a kid, in science class I was reading a book about carnivorous plants. I thought that the Venus Flytraps were really cool. I was just wondering if you guys have any spare Venus flytrap seeds I could have. If yes please e-mail me at Thanks a lot,

John Chen

P.S. : If you have any other spare seeds of any carnivorous plant that would also be great :)

Venus Flytraps can take 2-3 years to grow to mature or semi-mature size when grown from seed, so be prepared to be very patient and enjoy their growth even when they are very tiny (for the first full year). :)

You might want to read the article about growing from seed at the main website:
