Some plants can well handle grasshoppers of that size, although those that
can are usually more expensive. If you want to get some of these plants but
you are worried about having to feed them, don't be. I have myself over 30
different kinds of CPs in my collection, totalling over 150 plants in all. I
have never fed any of them, and they all do well. There are many kinds of
carnivorous plants, and it would be better to buy those that are easier to
care for first. I would suggest sundews or bladderworts (terrestrial). Here
is another site that may help you gain some knowledge on the subject;
Hope this all helped.
