How to be successful at growing carnivorous plants. I also would like to keep my Orchids alive. I am a total newbie at plants and I suck at keeping things alive. I live in Houston Texas and I wanted to keep the plants outside in pots or planters.

Welcome! Ann. First off, please go to your "Profile" and add your location. Advice about growing is very dependent on location and climate conditions.

Are you growing your plants inside, outside, or a mix? What sort of orchids are you growing?

Hi Ann, and welcome. So you are in hot, humid Houston where most of the year your orchids and carnivorous plants will generally like to be outside - depending!! upon what kind of orchids and carnivorous plants you have. Some orchids can't take the heat too well, so don't go rushing to move the plants outside today.

Pictures will help us to help you, if you don't know what exactly you are growing.
