Feed Venus flytrap
Let’s avoid fertilizing carnivorous plants, which are very sensible to the water’s salinity; to avoid them from being ruined by the presence of salt, let’s water them with demineralised water.

Irrigation Venus flytrapTenere Umido
Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 1-2 weeks can be enough using 2-3 glasses of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. To guarantee the right quantity of water we can keep the vases immersed for some centimetres in demineralised water.

Temperatures Venus flytrapPosizione mezza ombra
These plants usually can stand cold temperatures, not even the harsh winter temperatures; the species originated in hot climate countries are grown as apartment plants. Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.Let's avoid exposing the The Venus flytrap to temperatures below 15°C. During late Spring we can place them outdoors, possibly sheltered by the wind.
