Update: I potted it up in damp long fiber sphagnum moss. It is sitting in a dish of distilled water on a southern-facing screened in porch. Not sure if I'm supposed to keep it in standing water constantly. Instructions online weren't super clear. As always, advice is welcome and practically begged for. Just doing my best out here! #venusflytrap #advice #carnivorousplants #newplant
If anybody has any Venus Flytrap advice, I'll take it! Got some surprise plant mail yesterday. I've never had a carnivorous plant so I'm lost. Just been scouring the internet so far. I would appreciate any personal experience based advice you guys have to offer. #venusflytrap #advice
I know @demeterstouch grows them. Drawing a blank for others. Tap on #venusflytrap and #carnivorous-plants and see who grows them. You can specifically tag them or read what has already been giving for advice. 💗
Distilled water for sure there natural habitat has poor soil and the minerals in tap water will kill them. Feed them small cricket or any type of live fly once every 10 days. They need to be alive to trigger the trap. I can’t remember sunlight, humidity or temperatures. They will sometimes die off but will grow back. I want one too.
