Care Guide

Drosera Capensis Funky Flora Seeds.jpg


Light: Drosera plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. Place them near a south-facing window to ensure they receive plenty of light without direct afternoon sun.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Use distilled, rain, or purified water to avoid mineral buildup. Never let the soil dry out completely.

Soil: Use a well-draining, acidic soil mix consisting of sphagnum moss, perlite, and sand in equal parts. Do not use regular potting soil as it contains too many nutrients which will harm the plants

Potting: Repot when the plant outgrows its container or the soil becomes depleted. Choose a slightly larger pot with drainage holes at the bottom.

Venus Fly Trap

Light: Venus flytraps require plenty of bright, direct sunlight. Place them in a south-facing window or outdoors where they can receive at least 6 hours of sunlight daily.

Watering: Water your Venus flytrap with distilled, rain, or purified water to keep the soil consistently moist. Use the tray method by placing the pot in a saucer of water to absorb moisture from the bottom.

Soil: Use a well-draining, acidic soil mix of sphagnum moss and perlite in equal parts. Avoid regular potting soil, which contains minerals harmful to the plant.

Dormancy: During winter, Venus flytraps need a period of dormancy in winter. Reduce watering. Resume normal care in spring when new growth appears.

Potting: Repot your Venus flytrap when needed using a pot with drainage holes and the soil mix mentioned above.

Pests and Diseases: Watch for pests like aphids, spider mites, and scale insects. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap. Avoid overwatering to prevent fungal diseases like root rot.

This simplified care guide should help you maintain a healthy and thriving Venus flytrap.
