So my dumbass had impulse bought two "terrarium kits" from Lowes of bug eating plants. Probably not a wise idea. Comes with a dormant venus fly trap and a pitcher plant each, as well as a baggie of soil and sphagnum moss.

I just want to know what you guys think of this buy and how I can properly care for these little guys, or at least to give me some idea of what to do before I do more research. You guys (at least most of you) are awesome and really know your shit. I am a complete noob for the most part. All I've ever done was plant a few flowers and throw some water on their asses every so often. And I really do not trust the shit they have in the instructions for these guys. I've heard of so much misinformation about my pets in the past and see no reason why they would be accurate in this case.

Here's the paper with caregiving instructions. Probably bullshit.

Its green so it must still be alive right?

Also, it's winter time obviously. How do I go about growing them now? Don't they have a dormant stage?
>>
Oh. And another thing. This kit wants me to plant both the venus flytrap And the pitcher plant in the same small pot. I guess I could plant the pitcher plants in one, the flytraps in another since I have two kits?
>>
Look up Death Cube on Flytrapcare.com. Go to Terraforums. Venus Fky Traps and Pitcher Plants are dormant this time of year. If you go onto the sites I gave you, they'll do fine. Feel free to ask any more questions.
