Basic Care for Venus Flytrap Plants for Beginners

Venus flytraps are notoriously difficult to care for. However, its reputation for being a challenge to grow is somewhat unwarranted. There are only a few, but fairly strict, rules to follow for the basic care of a Venus flytrap.

Venus Flytrap thrives in poor, acidic soil that remains moist but still has good drainage. Avoid planting it in regular potting soil: a mix of one-third sand and two-thirds sphagnum peat moss provides the best drainage and moisture retention. Don't add lime to the soil and never add fertilizer.

Venus flytraps work best in bright but indirect light. It's especially important to avoid placing them in direct sunlight in summer, which can get very hot and cause the leaves to crisp. When growing under artificial lights, keep fly traps 4 to 7 inches away from fluorescent lights. If your plant's traps don't show a pink interior or if the leaves look long and spindly, provide more light.

For the best Venus flytrap care, keep the environment humid and the soil moist, but do not allow the plants to remain in water constantly. Never give your plants what comes out of your faucet; it is usually very alkaline or may have many minerals. Instead, rely on rain or use distilled water. Good air circulation is also important when growing Venus flytraps, so run a fan in the room where you keep them.

Follow these basic Venus flytrap care techniques and you will have beautiful plants for years to come!
