Answer
Hello

Sorry, i was out of town.

Of course you can Mikayla!

If you mean sarracenia, you need to protect your plants from the overheating afternoon sun.
You can shade with a cloth.
And don't forget to give yours plants plenty of demineralized water.

If you mean nepenthes, you need a terrarium, because of the desert air.
I don't know if you have local carnivorous plants store, but you can order from czplants.com, or bestcarnivorousplants.com

Sarracenia NorthWest is a good place too.

Hope this help!
