Growing Guides
These growing guides are written by myself.  Currently there are six guides.  The basic growing guide introduces carnivorous plants, the reasons why they are carnivorous, and basic cultivation information.  The specific growing guide offers more detailed information and growing instructions for a variety of different families of carnivorous plants.  The propagation guide introduces the basics of carnivorous plant propagation and then applies these basics to individual families of  carnivorous plants.  The scientific names guide is an explanation for beginners of the latin naming of carnivorous plants and contains a list of latin names for each genus and links these names to the common names.  The terrarium guide explains the process of creating a carnivorous plant terrarium.  The artificial bog guide explains the process of creating a peat bog for carnivorous plants.

This section includes a list of excellent web pages which I feel anyone interested in carnivorous plants should visit as well as links to carnivorous plant societies and a listing of carnivorous plant books which I recommend.
