Venus flytrap is probably the most popular carnivorous plant. It is one of the carnivorous plants with an active trap, with its jawed trap that quickly closes on its prey. Captured insects will provide nitrogen. An essential nutrient for its growth. However, after being used a few times, the traps eventually turn black and die. It is recommended to remove dead traps as you go. For this reason, avoid giving her insects, she does very well on her own. It prefers to be cramped in its pot and requires a period of winter rest . Venus flytrap does not tolerate the excess minerals found in tap water at all. This excess could be fatal to him. It is important to water it with demineralized water which can be bought in pharmacies or with rainwater. Slush works great too!
