Hi I was wondering if I could add zeolite (a natural mineral) to Carnivorous plants' medium such as Sundews. Since it is a mineral, would the plant be sensitive to it? I read that Zeolite has purification and aeration properties.

"Mineral" is not a term that means anything, as it's an immense category. Carnivorous plants require components in their soil that will not leach anything, such as inert quartz or perlite. As zeolite is an aluminum compound and used as an absorbent etc. it doesn't fit that category and could well be disastrous.
