Venus Flytrap Care Instructions

  • Potting: Choose a pot made of plastic, glass or glazed ceramic, and avoid terracotta or clay pots which contain minerals that can stunt the growth of young Venus Flytraps (Dionaea Muscipula)
  • Soil: Minerals are carnivorous plants’ kryptonite! Your Flytrap will grow best in soil that is free of minerals and nutrients – so no fertilising required – and which has good drainage. Our carnivorous plant potting medium is the ideal hassle-free soil solution.
  • Sunlight: Venus Flytraps love plenty of light. Whether they’re indoors or outdoors, place them in an area that gets at least 6 hours of light on a sunny day. High sun exposure also helps with growth when Flytraps are very young.
  • Watering: Flytraps are thirsty, as well as hungry! Water often, so the soil never dries out. Placing the pot in a tray of water also helps to hydrate the soil. The minerals in tap water can be harmful to them, especially when young, so water them with mineral-free distilled or rainwater.
  • Feeding: Even young Flytraps are ready to capture passing bugs! They best way to feed your young (or mature) Flytrap is to leave it outside and allow it to trap tiny flies, mosquitos or other very small insects. When your Flytrap matures, you can occasionally hand feed it, if you like. Live mealworms or crickets from pet stores are great food options. Gently place the bug inside the leaf, making sure that it is no more than 1/3 the size of the trap. You don’t need to feed every trap, just one or two traps every week or two will ensure your hungry plant is satisfied.
