That's what I would guess the order normally would be . Many beginner fish are very forgiving of mistakes on fish keeping however most carnivorous plants don't give the illusion of success when done wrong .

I don't think I've had a carnivorous plant live past 3 months. I was getting them at hardware stores and feeding them every day, though. I've since done research just want to get my tanks up and life situated before another investment like that.

I was a fish person before I was a CP person. I think there is correlation between people who like living critters, whether it be fish, plants, or cats or dogs or emus or....

Ya. The great many flytraps that have died on windowsills can attest to that!

Hopefully this thread will inspire me to keep my hungry bog thread open. While it's unseasonably cold here (and the plants are in the garage), I do have some flower buds on my Sarracenia.

I wish they made VFTs that got fist-sized heads on them. I know they have giant strains but I want one big enough I can call it Seymour!
