Venus' Fly Trap
How to care for Venus' Fly Trap
Light: Full Sun
Place in a bright room that is sun drenched almost all day. Or directly in a south-facing window.
Watering need: High demand
This is a water-loving plant, it does not like to dry up much. Before watering feel the soil - the top layer of soil can be slightly dry and the soil below should be a bit moist, but not wet, when watering again. Squeeze a bit of soil between your fingers - if water seeps out it’s still wet.
