All CP hobbyists:

Last weekend, I went to Washington, DC area (Climate Zone 7) and was
looking for Cherry Blossom trees... I ended up the U.S. Botional Gardens
of Tropical and Subtropical plants near the Captiol Hill. I just was
curious in the building that opens 9 to 5 daily to public. Admission is free.

In one of their chambers, I found the carnivous plants near the bog
outside of the building. I saw the pitcher plants (two major species) and
venus flytap, and sundews there. They are growing so well as healthy in
zone 7! Venus Flytrap has big traps. :)

I am just curious that Venus flytrap plants can grow well in DC area
(zone 7). Do you believe them? Do you grow your venus flytrap plants
outside at DC metro area?
