Hi, Huntertony. I have cape sundew. I acquired 3 carnivorous plants last year and up to now they have survived the winter.  I'm not sure which species it is but have identified it as a Cape and up to now , have not had any problems with it.

I read a lot of useful information on this site.

It has a care guide as well. This year I'm going to try another Venus flytrap.

I find them fascinating little plants. Here is my sundew.

Hello, now you can see what we do with some carnivorous plants-we eat them. Good cleaning (many time) and fill with sticky rice and creamy coconut souce-yam yam!

Try Hampshire Carnivorous Plants - www.hantsflytrap.com

As well as sundew & Venus flytrap I've a number of pitcher plants, all of which have survived for a number of years. The pots sit in trays which I keep topped up with about 0.5" rainwater all year round. Apart from removing dead leaves occasionally & repotting when they are about to split their pot that's all the attention they get.
