I made a mini bog for my Venus flytrap! I am thinking about making a mushroom cap to cover the watering hole.

It looks hungry. "Feed me Seymour!" 😊

My flytrap is in it's winter dormancy. It will have very little growth and almost seem dead. But, it will perk back up in the spring time!

@aes239 You can see the major difference in the dormant plant!

Do you ever feed it when its dormant?

@poopsiepie Do you mean feed it bugs? I leave it outside so it might eat some bugs in it's own. I've only tried to feed it a bug once because I didn't know you have to give it live bugs and not dead ones. Haha

Wow 😀 that looks amazing! I've only ever had tiny Venus fly traps before, like 2-3 inches max... How big is yours (before dormancy)?

This was this summer before dormancy! I'd say this one was about 4 inches tall after nursing it back to health from Lowe's :'( The other pic is how it looks in dormancy.
