Hi Gary, sorry so long to reply but I am having problems negotiating around the site but getting the hang now.  I have a venus fly trap, only a little one at the moment, a sarracenia and a sundew.  The sundew has just flowered so I am quited excited about this.  I have just ordered another venus fly trap which looks to have smaller stalks and another sarracenia which looks to be a different colour.  When they come I will post exactly what they are.   I just like any of the plants really but as a begginer I accept I am better to have some that are easier to grow.  When should I think about repotting, if a all, any of these do you thing.  Yve

hi Yve, a lot of us started like that, a VFT, a Sarr and a sundew but then you soon start filling every space with more and more.  You should be OK with those plants as long as you get the watering right and for the VFT and Sarrs give them a cool Winter dormancy.  Best to repot when they're dormant if they need it, e.g. if they've outgrown there pots or you want to change the compost to your own mix.  What Drosera did you buy? D. capensis?

Hi Gaz, not sure which one I bought, it has not arrived yet  and I am still getting used to the names, but yes I do want to fill my house with them but I dont think I have enough bright light spaces, one window sill is great but the others dont get enough sun so this window sill is going to be mega full.  Problem is some of the plants come from different countries, are quite expensive and the shipping is a lot too.  Thanks for your advice. Y.

hi Yve

Have you found the UK nurseries yet, there's quite a few online and being UK based shipping is more reasonable.
