Green Thumb Guide

Must be grown in low nutrient soils such as a peat moss/sand mixture. Keep soil wet to the touch with distilled water. Keep in a very bright window or under a grow light. Can tolerate some direct sunlight, but will scorch if temperatures get too high. May be fed once or twice a month with insects as large as crickets if the plant has not caught them on its own.
