I can check if more plants are available in market here, this Venus i got from a garden shop in a Bigger City 100 km from here , when i will visit agan i will check, but it is expensive more than Rs. 1000. plus custom tax will make it double or triple.In pak it is difficult to purchase carnivorous plant.

I can recommend you to purchase from ebay, many varieties of carnivorous plants are available there.

Yes and a very good one so far.. Zantedeschia aethiopica is growing very well in ground, the other hybrids are also doing well, not good pictures, but the plants are healthy and are developing many inflorescence:
