Carnivorous Venus Fly Trap Plant Care

Posted by Hulya Mehmet on

Carnivorous plants use specialized foliage to attract and trap their prey, such as insects and small animals.

 

Light

Your Venus Flytrap prefers bright indirect light. It will tolerate lower light, but growth may slow.

Water

Water when the top 25% of the soil is dry, do not allow the soil to dry out completely. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

Humidity

Your Venus Flytrap will greatly benefit from added humidity. You can add humidity for your Venus Flytrap by misting them, adding a humidifier nearby, or using a pebble tray.

Temperature

Your Venus Flytrap will thrive in average room temperatures between 15-25 degrees.

Food

Your Venus Fly Trap does not need any fertilizer, as it gains nutrition from the insects it traps and digests. Using fertilizer can actually harm it, as it is not used to living in nutrient-rich soils.

Toxicity

Your Venus Fly Trap is mildly toxic and may cause digestive issues if ingested.

Additional Care

If you do not have many insects in your home and want to give them a little treat, you can feed them a recently dead or live insect such as a fly, roach, or spider once every month. Make sure that the insect fits into their traps easily.
