Venus Fly Trap............

I was given a grow-your-own kit as a present today  

I've bought a couple in the past, but I've never grown them from seed before. Has anyone else?

No mate, havn't seen one of those in years.

I've never grown one from seed but I have owned a few of them over the years and they fascinate me
Good luck and let us know how you get on

Will do Kaz  

Apparently they can take up to 6 weeks to germinate, & can be quite tricky to grow as they're tropical plants. We'll see how we get on, anyway!

I've had a few in the past, but they seem to come with a built-in self destruct mechanism & die after a month or so. Maybe it's just too cold for them up here, or maybe the ones you can buy from B&Q, etc, just haven't been hardened-off before they go on sale?

don't know much about the fly trap but maybe this link might throw some light
