I have been searching for Venus fly trap plants. I know they sell them at Lowes but they are a little too pricey for me. Does anyone have any to share? Willing to pay postage. Or work something out. Please let me know. Thank you!!

Erin, I saw some in Lowe's the other day. I am not really into them because after they eat a certain amount of flies they die. I hope you find some. Luciee {;^) Oops, I didn't read all the way through before I replied. L.

Keep in mind that these are NOT houseplants. They require a winter dormancy period and after last frost belong OUTSIDE in FULL Sun all day.

I absolutely agree with Tommy. We have them in my store during the spring and summer but they quickly diminish. This year, I placed them outdoors with a fair amount of sun and shade where they could also get rainwater. They thrived! And every last one of them flowered. It was fun to show the kids that came around the Daddy Longlegs caught in one of the traps. These are bog plants and need specific conditions to do well.
