Green Thumb Guide

Must be grown in low nutrient soils such as a peat moss/sand mixture. Keep pot sitting in at least an inch or two of distilled or rain water at all times. Do not allow to dry out. Flytraps usually need at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight a day. Always slowly acclimate your new plant to intense light. Cannot tolerate temperatures over 90° or their sensitive roots will die. From October to February, plant enter a dormancy where most of the traps will turn black and die. Flytraps are best overwintered outdoors to ensure this dormancy. Keep soil wet during this period, but not sitting in water. New leaves will spring to life around March when the weather warms and days get longer.
