I've had one or two in the past. Figured they could eat all the gnats around the fig cups. All they did was die on me.

I have being thinking of getting some so I can keep them in the green house and or house so they can eat any insects that get close but I have not seen any seeds nor plants in any of the stores.  I use to see Venus flytraps in Walmart but have not in a while

I have had almost all varieties of carnivorous plants including very expensive Australian Cephalotus follicularis. Well easiest to care for carnivorous plant will still be my very first purple pitcher plant. Others can't really catch any insects. If you want a plant that has huge pitcher and doesn't go dormant, you can try Miranda pitcher plant. I planted my purple pitcher outdoor in the garden and they thrive, make sure to water them when it gets hot and dry outside. It tolerate tap water and soil, unlike other carnivorous plants, the water harness has to be below 50ppm.

For your information wife wanted christmas ornaments from Hobby Lobby so I wondered around. They had little starter kits for venus fly traps, pitcher plants and the little sticky plants who's name I cannot remember.
