venus flytrap

United Kingdom Gb

how do I feed it as I have never had one before do I really feed it flies what about winter when ther is none



Hello Baberuth,
According to the Miracle Gro Encyclopedia of Plant Care, you do not need to feed a Venus flytrap - it feeds itself!! A spider, pillbug, or fly every month or so is enough. I hope that answers your question. It's scientific name is Dionaea muscipula. You might Google it for further information. Good Luck!

Hi also your venus fly trap needs to be kept standing in rainwater as it is a bog plant and will die if it dries out.Good luck

I think they can also be fed a small piece of cheese if there are no insects around
