So when your #venus-fly-trap kick the bucket. Don’t compose it. It will come back when warm weather comes around again.

Had to move it inside so it would survive temperatures below 50 degrees. Seems to like where it is. Lots of sunlight in the south facing windows

I think this #venus-fly-trap is going to make it through winter just fine

So these need water too!? (Really, I know they do) Water and fresh meat, could almost be human. Really tho, do they need to be fed bugs if they don't catch any?

There very good at attracting the bugs all by themselves @lesliecole49 and they need rain water or distilled water. There native soil is poor. Misting is good too they really like humidity

@yogi2 Venus flytrap go dormant in the winter and die off. It should come back in the spring 🥰

My daughter Sarah @saguaro and her boyfriend Josh bought this #flytrap for me. So excited, I’ve been wanting one for a while. Carnivores plants are my new interest.

I know very little about carnivores plants @rosechilders101 I’m just starting. I do know they like green house environment and flytraps needs distilled water and live bugs

@rosechilders101 carnivorous plants like lots of humidity and fed once a week. I spray mine several times a day and have it in an open terrarium, sitting in rocks and a tray with water underneath the terrarium. You don’t want it air tight, because it needs to breathe They also generally like being outdoors, but I have my flytrap indoors. You can see it further down in my posts. Swipe left to see other photos without scrolling forever 😅 Hope that helped a little. Also distilled water is a must.
