    Just curious if anyone has ever had a carnivorous plant garden and what plants you would recommend for a temperate climate. I am in zone 7am and i am looking to start a small full sun carnivorous plant garden just to try something different. Even if you don't have one and you have a little bit of knowledge about it or a recommendation, please share. Thank you! :D

    You could contact the Carnivorous Plant Organization and they will be able to tell you exactly which plants will do best in your area.

    Here is their website:

    I grow sundew and pitcher plants in my garden here in Scotland and they do very well.

    Here is a site that lists lots of sites specific to carnivous plants and their preservation and gardening. I know some are native to our area in the Puget Sound of Washington State. Fascinating.
