The CPS has produced a series of cultivation caresheets covering the main genera of Carnivorous Plants. These are by no means comprehensive guides. For more detailed information there are many books on the subject and of course the Carnivorous Plant Society has produced its own pocket guide to growing Carnivorous Plants (available from our online shop). 

To view the caresheets please click on the links below. Note that you will need the Adobe reader to view these files which is available from here. Each caresheet opens in a new tab. The caresheets have been designed to be self-contained for each genus but they refer to a general cultivation document for general care.
