carnivorous plants have become a popular pet for many.

Some of them sold as pets are -

  1. tropical pitcher plants
  2. pitcher plants
  3. venus flytrap
  4. drosera capensis
  5. sundews
  6. trumpet pitchers

They are also available online from major e-commerce sites.

So, my question is -

Will questions regarding pet carnivorous plants fall within the scope of the site?


In my opinion, no. They are not animals.

    @JamesJenkins hmmmm, tricky. Now I'm reconsidering my answer ;) – JAD Jan 28 '19 at 18:28

I think no, since it is not the best place for questions about 'non-animals'. Posters are more likely to get useful answers (that is, answers from users with lots of relevant experience), by posting about plants on Gardening and Landscaping SE.
