Venus Fly Traps
Venus Fly Traps
Approx. Size: 50mm
- If you water Venus flytraps from the top then try to avoid pouring water over the traps. This may trigger traps to close which will cause your plant to spend unnecessary energy.
- Place your pot plant out in the rain and remove the water tray. As the rain water runs through the bottom of the pot it removes any salts or minerals which may be present in the peat moss.
- Sunlight: or those living in the Southern Hemisphere a north facing aspect will provide most light. Your plant will get morning, midday and late afternoon sun. However if you don't have a North facing aspect then try to aim for a minimum of 4 hours of direct sunlight.
Damp rather wet is best - In winter the plants need less water because they're dormant and the temperatures are lower. The trick is to have the soil damp but not soaking wet. When you place your finger on the peat moss it should feel damp rather than wet.
The tray method - If you use the tray method of watering then simply allow more time between watering. Allow the tray to completely evaporate, wait say 4 or 5 days and then refill the tray. With low evaporation rates during winter you only around half a centimeter of water in the tray.
Happier plants - Not only will your plants be happier but you will reduce the chance of mold appearing on dead leaves. This can happen if you over water your plants in winter and there is too much humidity.
