Sun: Indirect

Venus Fly Trap specific care requirements that involve an abundance of sunlight for optimal growth. To ensure their well-being, high light plants necessitate a minimum of 6 hours of direct, bright light daily. It is essential to place these plants in the brightest location in your home to allow them to thrive and reach their full potential.

Light: Medium - Bright

Venus fly trap plants flourish in bright light but can also withstand medium light conditions. An optimal location with medium light in your home would be positioned midway between a window of average size, ensuring consistent illumination. They can be situated anywhere between the center of the room and the window. Keep in mind that the growth of plants is influenced by the amount of light they receive.

Water: Keep Mostly Moist

They prefer the soil to remain consistently moist, avoiding excessive saturation. Venus Fly Trap need regular and frequent watering for optimal growth and performance. It is recommended to water these plants 3 to 4 times a week to ensure they receive adequate moisture. This frequent watering schedule is necessary because high water plants like the Venus Fly Trap are generally fast-growing and have shallow roots, requiring more water to thrive.

Humidity: High

They thrive in environments with high humidity levels, so aim to provide daily misting or as frequently as feasible. Alternatively, positioning them near a humidifier can also enhance their growing conditions. While they can tolerate lower humidity levels, insufficient moisture may result in the development of dry, crispy, or yellow-edged leaves.

Pet Friendly: Yes

While it's reassuring to know that this plant poses minimal risk if your pet happens to nibble on it, we generally advise against allowing pets to consume any houseplants as a precautionary measure.

Pro Tip

Venus flytraps primarily rely on a diet of live flies or other small insects for sustenance. The crucial aspect of their feeding mechanism lies in capturing prey that is alive; deceased flies are ineffective for Venus flytrap feeding. This is because the insect needs to be active within the trap to trigger its closure and subsequent digestion. Additionally, the prey should be sufficiently small to allow the trap to seal tightly around it, preventing bacterial intrusion.

Similar to numerous other plants, Venus flytraps undergo a period of winter dormancy, during which they may appear seemingly lifeless, with foliage possibly receding. It's essential to maintain them in a warm, well-lit environment during this phase while ensuring that the soil doesn't completely dry out. Opting for rainwater or distilled water for watering purposes is advisable to provide the optimal conditions for their growth and health.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
