Venus Fly Trap Care

Light: Venus Fly Traps need bright, direct sunlight to thrive. They should receive at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight each day. Place them in a south-facing window or under artificial grow lights. Inadequate light can weaken the plant.

Water: Use distilled or rainwater to water your Venus Fly Trap. Avoid tap water or bottled water with added minerals, as these can harm the plant. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Always keep the saucer underneath the pot filled with water to maintain the required humidity.

Humidity: Venus Fly Traps require high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by placing the pot on a tray filled with water, using a humidity tray, or misting the plant regularly. Avoid letting the soil dry out.

Soil: Plant your Venus Fly Trap in a mixture of sphagnum moss and perlite. This soil combination provides the necessary acidity and moisture retention the plant needs.

Feeding: Venus Fly Traps obtain essential nutrients from the insects they capture. While it’s not required to feed them, if your plant doesn’t catch enough insects naturally, you can provide small insects, such as live flies or ants, to stimulate growth. Do not feed it human food or inorganic materials.

Triggers: Avoid touching the sensitive trigger hairs inside the traps. Repeatedly triggering the traps without prey can exhaust the plant’s energy.
